April Kassman, an English-Language Arts teacher at the Academy of Information Technology and Engineering (AITE), assigned an intriguing assignment during the first quarter for her Creative Writing students to take part in. When asked about their thoughts on this assignment, Sarah Paley, a junior at AITE said, “After we read the book Letters from a Nut, I thought that it was hilarious and I really wanted to do something like it.
Asia James, a senior at AITE who had received a response back from the company that she had written to had this to say “When I found out that my letter was chosen to be sent out, I was very happy because I worked hard on it but I never thought it would be chosen to be mailed out.

Perhaps the tendency to increase the distance from Iconium has something to do with the increasing distance these letters traveled, with the message becoming distorted over distance, like in the children’s game of telephone.

The volume, "The Selected Letters of Willa Cather," set for release April 16, presents the author's letters along with historical and biographical context to guide readers through Cather's life through her newly released words.

Jewell said theories have abounded as to why she banned the publication of her letters; he said he believes the reasoning was simply a desire to protect her and her loved ones' privacy and to allow her body of work to speak for itself.
The large heading bar at the top provides a central focus for the letter while the body of the letter is intentionally narrow, centered and in an 11pt font size with increased spacing to restrict the text of the letter to a single sharp message. The letter content is wide and fills the entire page with ample spacing between paragraphs for easy reading. The layout is very conservative so as to give an air of formality and ample space is left on the bottom of the letter for a signature.

I have not received a letter back in response to mine but I certainly hope I do soon or I might just have to write to them again”. Jerry Seinfeld, the comedian who had written the introduction to Letters from a Nut says “if you should find yourself in possession of this book, one of the great joys of it is definitely reading the letters out loud.
