Sign up for the “Ryan G. Van Cleave Infrequent Newsletter” above. You’ll only hear from me about 6x per year, and almost none of it will include those obnoxious “Please, please, please buy MY book!” requests that really aren’t very effective and no one wants to hear.

Sign up today and you’ll receive my 18-page .pdf “Making the Most of a Writing Critique Group” at no cost. You’ll receive it from me personally--not from a robot, intern, or autoresponder--along with a thank you note because I value every single newsletter recipient and supporter of my work.
