Maggie Downs #84

Maggie Downs is the author of Braver Than You Think coming out May 12th on Counterpoint Press. She’s also a skydiver, which is way braver than I could ever be, and we discuss that on the show.

This episode was taped pre-pandemic, so, in person, at The Alcove, over drinks. Why does that feel like another era.

Enjoy the show, and below is how the info on how to join my monthly free creative writing workshop online through the Los Angeles Public Library on May 6th.
