In an essay, ending with a cliffhanger doesn’t mean that the essay is left unfinished. All important points must be covered, yet it’s possible to leave some possibilities open for further development even with a cliffhanger ending. Whether the writer’s cliffhanger asks a question, gives the reader a last idea to ponder, or mentions an unexpected twist, ending with a cliffhanger can make the essay memorable and interesting to the very last word. Time4Writing’s free writing resources cover the ins and outs of writing cliffhangers. Designed to help students improve their writing skills, regardless of academic grade or proficiency level, Time4Writing’s 8-week courses provide more in-depth practice and one-on-one instruction by a certified teacher.
