Poetry Prompt 36 – How it could have ended

write a poem which retells the story of a film or novel, but with an alternative ending

Today’s prompt is to write a poem which retells the story of a film or novel, but with an alternative ending.

You might like to consider:

  • What film or novel should you choose? An old favourite or one that is easy to re-tell?
  • Is there a film/novel you can recall whose ending really displeased you?
  • How can you effectively summarise the story without making your poem too long?
  • Should you go for a slightly different ending or something which changes everything?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.
