Combining panels with publishing professionals, interviews with featured authors, and a rapid-fire Q&A between literary pals, Coordinates is not-your-average podcast! Co-hosted by KT Herr and Hannah Matheson, this long-form quarterly series has unique segments — “Fresh Pressed,” “Fellow Traveler,” “Hot Dish,” and “From the Crossroads” — that invite you to listen all in one go or digest it in sections. Like a good book, Coordinates takes advantage of its robust runtime (usually 2 hours per episode) to build an entire world. Listeners can take their time with these episodes, pausing and returning to each over several days. This show is your one-stop shop for literary community; listen along as we demystify the publishing industry, dive deep with contemporary authors, ask writing friends our burning questions, and send listeners on their way with an actionable prompt and creative inspiration for the miles to come. Coordinates is grateful to Four Way Books for sponsorship and to the Cornelius Eady Group for the beautiful music featured in each episode.
This LitNYS project is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
