Exits: Writing Endings [Sara Brickman]
All Levels | The poet Rachel McKibbens says, “Poems don’t end, they just stop.” The best endings leave us reeling, the tops of our heads blown off by knowledge we didn’t know we needed, reverberating long after the words have finished and we’ve turned the page. But how do we know when a poem is done? In this class, you’ll learn five techniques for ending a poem. Learn how to Slam the Door, Sing the House Down, Jump Out the Window, and more. Bring one or two poems-in-progress that you don’t know how to end.
