Titles, Beginnings, Turns, and Endings: an On-line Poetry Workshop in Two Parts by Pam Baggett – PART TWO

February 26 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Part Two: Turns and Endings

The last lines of a poem, as we know, can be challenging. And while not every poem makes a turn, most make one or more, shifting the poem, incorporating new thoughts, ideas, and images so that it deepens in complexity and meaning. In this session, we’ll look at ways to create and navigate turns so that we weave spell-binding works that lead to powerful, satisfying endings. We’ll discuss strategies for creating those endings, ones that resonate with our titles as well as the body of the poem.

Note: If you can’t attend the first workshop, you’re still welcome to attend the second and can view the first workshop if you like on the library’s website. Writers working at all levels and in other genres are welcome.

***Please have several of your poems-in-progress to work on during the workshop.
