WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This guideline is the first place I’ve seen that states in writing what “The Forum” magazine doesn’t accept: skits, prayers, fictional stories, or poetry (except Alateen poetry which is being accepted on a trial basis). This information is left off of “The Forum Writing Guidelines” sharing sheet (item # F-1). Here’s the link so you can see for yourself: Forum Sharing Writing Form
2. Question – Who is “The Forum” representative at the group level? Answer – The GR (Group Representative)! As a side note, an entire document called “Tips for GR’s as Forum representatives” is available as item # F-2. Here’s the link so you can see for yourself: Tips for GR’s
**BONUS: I recently had to reach out to my local Area Forum Coordinator for help from the World Service Office. See my entry on Guideline item # G-29 to find out why!
***UPDATE (4/9/21): This guideline was revised in April of 2019. (It’s the guideline that has been updated the most recently!) An updated electronic version of this guideline can now be downloaded directly from the World Service Office website by clicking this link: G-32 Guideline
