Contacting the ARCP

We strongly encourage our readers to send comments and suggestions so that future staff members and editors can continue to improve the ARCP. We also welcome contact from organizations, such as books-to-prisoners programs, who are interested in cooperating in efforts to achieve wider distribution of the ARCP to prisoners.
