Roundabout can speak to us, and to potential members, in a very personal way. It is not a dry collection of facts about Alcoholics Anonymous but carries the voices of individual members telling their own stories.
Submitting your article is simple, click here to type it out and send it to the Editorial Team online, any sober alcoholic can write an article and there is no minimum length of sobriety required. Our little magazine depends on a stream of articles and carries AA's message of hope and recovery. It can often reach places and people that could not be reached in other ways; there are members sober today because they first met AA in the pages of a Roundabout found in a doctor's waiting room or handed in to a prison.
