Just like membership of our wonderful Fellowship, you need not be a special type of alcoholic to write for share. No one can keep you out; you’re a member if you say you are. And if you are a member, newcomer or oldtimer, we need to hear your experience, strength and hope just like at any other meeting.

Spelling and grammar will all be amended if necessary. You can write just a few lines or more, up to about 1000 words max, but we cannot publish poetry or obituaries. Each issue of share will always feature that month’s corresponding Step and Tradition. In addition, we need your words on whatever is important in your sobriety! To help you, we have the following list of upcoming themes. But, as always, write from the heart.
Send your article at least two months before the relevant topic is due to appear. For example, Step or Tradition 10 (October) needs to be in by August 15th and so on. So put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard – help yourself and us. Send your contribution to:
