Join Rhian Edwards and guest tutor Polly Atkin for this wonderful course in this amazing Yorkshire Dales setting: Character Portraits – Escaping the Ego will focus upon constructing and depicting characters and personalities in poetry, using friends, family, lovers and strangers, objects and emotions, and most fundamentally, writing in the second and third person.
