In a creative response to Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, think about how Marji feels about going to Austria. Is she happy to be there, sad to leave her family, or a mix of both? A letter to other characters is an opportunity to express her emotions.

Even though Marji didn't quite fit in back in Iran, going to Vienna must be a huge culture shock for her. Think about the differences between what life must be like in the two countries. Think about specific things that might be part of day-to-day life but might be a big culture shock for Marji to adjust to. You can write about what this is like for her.

As Marji experiences culture shock and new things in Austria, she might think back on memories from life back home. In your letter, you can have her reflect and recount a story from her childhood. Maybe now she has a new perspective on it. You should also consider how Marji's voice might change depending on who she is writing to.
