Founded in 1944, the AA Grapevine® is the monthly, international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous. Within its pages, AA members from around the world share their experience, strength, and hope.


Literature published by A.A. World Services, Inc. is a resource for the recovering alcoholic and for anyone who wants to find out about Alcoholics Anonymous, its history and how it works.


Each A.A. group, our district, our area, and G.S.O. provide a specific service and are autonomous. Separate contributions need to be sent to each entity.

Seeds of Service

The Seeds of Service is a newsletter published quarterly by Area 60 (Western Pennsylvania). It is distributed at each quarterly meeting of area 60 to the D.C.M.'s for each district. The D.C.M. supplies each group in their district with a copy of the newsletter to share with their group. ANYONE can submit an article, drawing, or writing of any kind to the newsletter by emailing newsletter@wpaarea60.org.

AA Guidelines

These A.A. Guidelines represent the shared experience of A.A. members and groups throughout the service areas in the United States and Canada. They also reflect guidance given through the Twelve Traditions and the General Service Conference (U.S. and Canada). In keeping with our Tradition of autonomy, except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole, most decisions are made by the group conscience of the members involved. The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist in reaching an Informed group conscience.
