Writers’ Discussion with

Victoria Ramirez

Your Pages:

Pacing and Description

Tuesday, 5 April 2011 at 7:00 p.m.

During her April visit, Vicki will lead a discussion on pacing and description which will feature examples submitted by writing group members.

Participants are encouraged to submit up to one page (double-spaced, 12 point font, 1 inch margins) at least one (1) week prior to the event.

Pages will be part of the discussion and should be taken from a portion of the manuscript that deals in some way with tension, pacing, description and/or setting. Pages will be sent to Professor Ramirez in advance and will be projected for the group to see during the discussion.

Pages may be dropped off at the library, marked -' c/o Elizabeth for the Writing Group' - or may be e-mailed to In the subject line please include the words 'writing group - my page'.

All pages should be sent/delivered to Elizabeth at the library no later than 29 March 2011. This will give Vicki time to read them and prepare for the discussion. Contact Elizabeth, 435-723-5850, if you need a later submission date and an arrangement can be made.
