The Focus is a series of articles written by Area 86 members on a variety of topics. It is then published prior to the Spring and Fall Assembly and made available for distribution by the District Committee Members to their General Service Representatives. It is used as a communication tool across the whole of Area 86.
Any Member can write a story on the topic for the Focus.
Your content should be based on the current topic.
It should be 200-400 words (1/2 to just over 3/4 of a page typed, single spaced) if it is a story to be published or it could be as small as 2-4 sentences if it is a brief idea pertaining to the chosen topic.
