Call For Submissions: Solvency in Retirement

Call for Submissions:

Voices of Recovery: Solvency in Retirement pamphlet

The WSC Literature Committee invites members to submit D.A. recovery stories for possible inclusion in the Voices of Recovery: Solvency in Retirement pamphlet. Submissions should be approximately 1000 words.

While sharing your story, you may want to address some of the following points:

  • What does retirement mean to you?
  • Do you have a vision for retirement?
  • Are you someone living a vision in retirement?
  • What have been your challenges in taking the financial leap into retirement?
  • How have you used D.A.’s tools and steps to remain solvent in retirement, for example, by taking part-time employment.

Our hope is that these recovery stories by D.A. members reflect a diversity of paths towards a serene and solvent retirement. We welcome experience, strength and hope from all walks of life throughout the world, including a special invitation to underserved voices.

  • Submitters will need to identify as “compulsive debtors” or “debtors” to be consistent with D.A.’s primary purpose, which is to “not incur unsecured debt.”
  • Members are encouraged to identify and highlight symptoms of debting in their personal stories (underearning and compulsive spending, for example).

Your submission should observe D.A.’s Twelve Traditions and be written in the first person: ‘When I first came to D.A. ….’ Submissions will be anonymised for the final publication.

The D.A. GSB reserves the right to edit your work where necessary.

Please include your full name and your mailing and email addresses. All personal information will be kept confidential. Please share this information with other members and at meetings.
