Replying to Hartley's enquiry about her writing and education. She describes how one teacher greatly affected her by introducing her to contemporary literature and having them keep “thought books.” She writes that college helps in exposing one to a wide range of ideas, “One think I would like to say that I think is important: a writer never knows how to write, never gives up learning, acquiring new tools, developing new approaches. It is a life-time study”.
