Ending a Poem

How do we know when to end a poem? What weight does that last line hold? We’ll grapple with questions about endings, spending time engaging a variety of ending approaches, from poets such as Frank Stanford, Emily Dickinson, H. D., and more. Along with readings, class will include generative prompts and mini-workshops. We’ll experiment with alternate endings, endings that surprise, and endings that begin again.
