HOW TO SUBMIT ARTICLES TO THE SERENITY MESSENGER
Original articles, poems, photographs or artwork can be emailed to the Serenity Messenger on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cover stories: Personal essays between 700-800 words can be submitted. If you have a story idea in mind and want to work with our editor while you write it, feel free to send a few lines explaining what your essay will be about.
Articles: Shorter articles are between 300-450 words and can be on any subject of interest to FA members. Some of the themes we usually run stories on are –
- Reflections on the 12 Steps
- How you came to FA
- How FA has impacted your life
- Your relationship with your addicted loved one
- Reflections on self-awareness
Think of something you may have shared at a meeting that you felt seemed particularly enlightening or interesting, and explain that in a few simple paragraphs. If you need ideas to awaken your creativity, open and browse through some past issues of our Newsletter posted below.
Focus:Group: This section gives a different FA group in each issue the opportunity to tell the fellowship what’s special about their approach to meetings and/or the 12 Steps. If you’d like to volunteer your group, or know of a group you think would like to write a Focus:Group article, please let us know.
We welcome your poems, too.
Articles must be typed in word.doc (preferably in the font Times New Roman, size 12, single line spacing) and attached with your email. Mention your group if you’re comfortable.
Scanned art works and photographs must be attached with a line or two explaining the context of your submission in your email. They should be in jpeg or png format, and no greater than 5 mb in size.
We encourage you to think about answering this call TODAY!
