Call for Submissions…


In response to the 2016 General Service Conference recommendation that the pamphlet “Young People and A.A.” be revised to “better reflect the experiences of young people in A.A. today,” the trustees’ literature committee is seeking current sharing from young people in A.A.

Please encourage young members in your area to write their personal stories for possible inclusion in the revised pamphlet “Young People and A.A.” Stories should reflect “In a general way what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now.”

Manuscripts should be 500-800 words, double spaced, in 12-point typeface. The words “Young People and A.A.” should appear on the top of the first page of the manuscript. The author’s complete name, address and email/telephone information should be included with the submission.

Submissions can be emailed to: with “Young People and A.A.” inserted in the subject line of the message. Alternatively, submissions can be mailed to: Literature Coordinator, General Service Office, Box 459, Grand Central Station, New York, NY 10163. The deadline for all submissions is December 30, 2016.

The anonymity of all authors will be observed, whether or not his or her story is selected for publication.

Thank you for your participation in this process.

Call for Stories and More Workshop


Writing Workshop

Hosted by District 15, Saturday, September 12, 2015, 11am – 2pm

Potluck from 11-12, Workshop from 12-2

Please join them for a writing workshop in Chico to learn more about sharing your story of recovery with AA as a whole.

Personal recovery stories are needed from AA members for the revised pamphlets, “AA for the Woman” and “AA for the Gay/Lesbian Alcoholic” as well as for a new piece of AA literature for the alcoholic with mental health issues.

The workshop will also give an overview of the entire process of revising our AA literature and creating new AA literature. They will also discuss how to write and submit your story for publication in the Grapevine or La Vina.

It’s the same location that District 15 held their last mock conference workshop. The workshop is independent of California Northern Interior Area 07, so it won’t be the same one that Sacramento and Stockton are doing.
