Editorial Policy

The Point welcomes stories carrying the message of experience, strength and hope. We evaluate articles with our 12 Traditions in mind and edit for clarity. We encourage members to tell stories in their own way.

Send a document with a title and a byline (first name + last initial). Use single-spaced 12-point font. We may reprint material without requesting additional permissions. The Point does not pay for articles. If you have questions, email [email protected].

Mission Statement

The Point is a monthly newsletter for San Francisco and Marin members to share their experience, strength and hope. We welcome personal stories of recovery, letters, poems and art work to carry the message. The committee reviews content in observance of the 12 Traditions. Publication does not constitute endorsement by A.A., Intergroup, Central Office or the Communications Committee.

No one philosophy dominates The Point’s pages. We reflect the full diversity of experience and opinion found within our fellowship. We endorse Rule #62, promote unity and encourage all members to participate.
