Endings: When is Enough?
That’s all, folks! If only it were that easy. But the end of a poem needs to resonate with the entire poem, not just wrap it up. It can comment on the poem or lift it to a new meaning. It can leave the reader or listener laughing or suddenly somber. How do you write an ending that peels out of the driveway like a doomed lover? That drifts down like fog or gives a final firecracker pop? In this workshop we will look at different kinds of endings and how they make the meaning and mood of the poem. You will learn prompts that will help you revise endings. Bring one of your poems to read and we will workshop it just for the ending. The End.
