Instructor: Anastasia Nikolis
How do poems end? What makes a poem’s ending feel satisfying and complete? Ending any piece of writing is tough, and ending a poem is no different. In this workshop, we will talk about creating appetite and expectation throughout a poem, and how to satisfy or disrupt those expectations at a poem’s end. We will look at an array of example poems from contemporary poets, including many from this session’s featured poet, 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature winner, Louise Glück, to learn how to end poems with anything from a bang to a whimper.
