Do you often find yourself unsatisfied with your endings? Do you wonder why some poets seem to consistently find a good ending for their poems while you don’t? What even makes a good ending? This workshop will focus on the magic and mechanics of endings: the how and why of them; the when and where on the page of them. Yours will improve. To this end, you will be writing original poems, which will be workshopped every day. Daily feedback will be provided in the workshop. The final objective will be for you to take these skills home with you.
