Literature Update: Twelve Steps of Adult Children Steps Workbook
Fellowship request that Steps 6-12 be expanded with additional questions and exercises. This publication is open for revisions. Please submit suggestions for additions to the workbook to email@example.com.
4×4: The Laundry List Workbook – Integrating Our Laundry List Traits
We received tremendous response to this text. The Laundry List Workbook seeks to expand the Fellowship Text’s brief description of the “Other” or Opposite Laundry List. The Other Laundry List outlines characteristics of how adult children may be acting out the effects of the original Laundry List traits. Wherever possible we incorporated the valuable insights, commentary and suggestions.
We are looking for cover art for this book. The book’s size is approximately 8.5 x 11 inches (22×30 cm), so a high-resolution digital image (approximately 300 ppi) is needed. Please send photos or drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for art submissions is June 15. Be sure to include a copyright release form. A copyright release form can be downloaded from our website at http://www.adultchildren.org/comline.
The book is now in the final proofreading stage, and we anticipate offering The Laundry List Workbook for sale in August.
We received several articles, along with original artwork and photography for the 3rd Quarter ComLine. The next issue will be for the 4th Quarter: October, November, December. We are asking that all submissions be sent in by November 1.
Though primary focus for the 4th Quarter issue is on Steps 10, 11, 12 and Traditions 10, 11, 12, all shares, stories, poems reflecting experience, strength, and hope are welcome! Be sure to include a copyright release form with your story or artwork. A copyright release form can be downloaded from our website at http://www.adultchildren.org/comline.
