THE END: A Poetry Workshop

  • The Skillery 1323 6th Ave N Nashville, TN, 37208 United States (map)

What else to say?
We end in joy.

-Theodore Roethke

Every poem must end. But how? When? To what effect? In this workshop, we will consider what the greats have to say on the subject, unravel the mysteries of what makes a memorable and satisfying ending, and nail down specific strategies we can put to work in our own poems. The class will be equal parts discussion and writing workshop.

Key Takeaways:
Workshops at the Porch are rigorous yet welcoming, encouraging creative expression while sharpening your understanding of craft. Led by instructors with extensive teaching experience, each class focuses on a particular genre, approach, or use of writing, and allows participants to learn from one another in a supportive, friendly atmosphere.

Who's it For:
Poets interested in unraveling the mystery of what makes a memorable ending.

When does this class meet?
This class meets on Saturday, June 13th from 2-5pm.
