Granite Noir: Poison Pen Workshop with E.S. Thomson

Arsenic or aconite? Cyanide or curare? Have you ever asked yourself these questions? If so, perhaps the Poison Pen Workshop is for you. Crime fiction is one of the most popular genres. Methods of murder are many and varied, but nothing gives the crime writer as much scope as poison. Beloved by ‘golden age’ writers, such as Christie and Allingham, poisons have much to offer. In this two-hour workshop historical crime writer E.S.Thomson explores poison’s potential for crime. Come prepared to kill your characters.
