The latest from Dear Writer. Say, why not write us a letter yourself? And while I’m making requests, you really should check out Carolyn Mackler’s excellent contribution to the Dear Bully anthology. 

dearwriter:

Dear Carolyn, What gets you to respond to a reader’s letter? (And the reverse – what makes you not respond?) I’m so bad about replying to reader mail that sometimes it seems hopeless to even start. This one caught my eye because it’s rare to get an actual “old school” typewriter page. I also liked the breezy writing style and colorful vocabulary. XO, Gabrielle P.S. I read your chapter in DEAR BULLY while waiting to do an event at Vroman’s in Pasadena. It was wonderful.
