The End of the Poem

This workshop will explore the ways in which poems end, touching on issues of closure, determinacy and indeterminacy, stability and instability, signaling, and readerly expectations. We will read and discuss a handful of poems, undertake writing exercises, and workshop participant poems with a specific focus on how our poems end.
