Rocky Mountain Writer Podcast #20

Margo Christie - Dressing Up and Baring All

The guest on this episode of Rocky Mountain Writer is author, performance artist and educator Margo Christie. Margo is on a mission to blur the lines between high- and low-brow art. Her debut novel, "THESE DAYS, A Tale of Nostalgia on a Burlesque Strip," won a second prize in Amazon's 2012 Breakthrough Novel Award and was labeled "as original as it is addictive" by Publisher's Weekly. A 16-year resident of Denver, she's now semi-retired in Tampa Florida, where she's working on a second novel, tentatively titled "Memory Motel," and a collection of travel-inspired essays.

On the podcast, Margo chats about the writing ideas and concepts behind her workshop, "Dressing Up and Baring All."
