We spend a lot of time perfecting our beginnings, but endings can be just as difficult to get right. If your story’s ending isn’t both surprising and inevitable, if it doesn’t leave the reader with the right feeling or end on the right note, readers will remember that more than anything else. Whether that’s an agent, editor, or a reader who found your book on the shelf, a bad ending can make or break someone’s opinion of your entire story. Depending on who the reader is, this can sometimes mean the difference between publication or someone reading more of your work.
That’s why we’re excited to offer the class “Closing the Circle: Writing Endings in Fiction” with Jessica Wilbanks on Saturday, April 22. If you’re writing fiction and want to better understand what a satisfying ending does and how to accomplish it in your own writing, this class is for you.
All the best,
