Hartley had written to Dean concerning the importance of her secondary education upon her writing. She writes that she was home-schooled in Russia following the curriculum of an excellent secondary school and later attended Radcliffe College. “I would say that the more a student can do in writing both in high school and in college, the better prepared he or she will be to become a writer in later life. The two most important things are, first to read widely the works of those who throughout history have been distinguished for their style, and, second, to write and write and write, since this is the only way to acquire experience and to grow in maturity”.
