Any AA is invited to submit material to the newsletter.
Many people have said, “I want to write something but I don’t know what to write about.” So here are some suggestions:
- If you’re a founding member of your group, or it’s just been around for a long time, write about its history and any hardships it’s had to overcome along the way.
- Write an article about your recovery for the issue of your anniversary month.
- What was the easiest step for you? The hardest? Why?
- Tell us about meetings you’ve attended in other states and/or other countries. How were they the same? How were they different?
- Explain why a certain slogan or saying in AA is your favorite.
- How did you come to choose your home group? How did you choose your sponsor – or did s/he choose you?
- If you’ve had a spiritual experience, when and what was it?
- What has the program given you that you never had before?
- Tell about the service work you’ve done and how it enriched your recovery. Don’t be shy. Submit something today
