Guidelines for Submitting to The NA Way Magazine

Our editorial content ranges from personal essays about recovery and opinion pieces, to humorous accounts, and nostalgia or trivia about NA from our members. Like any publication, The NA Way has editorial guidelines. Submissions are copyedited for grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and comprehension; and for consistency with “NA language” (clean, addict, etc.). We do our very best to retain the author’s original meaning, style, and tone. The simplest way to reach us is by email at naway@na.org, but if you don’t have internet access, you can send submissions to us at the address below.
