Episode 1: Katherine Taylor


We are excited to present the first episode of More Friends, with Katherine Taylor, hosted by Tryn Collins. Katherine was a Lighthouse Works fellow back in 2017. In this wide-ranging interview, Tryn and Katherine talk about why the characters in Katherine's novel are eating and drinking so much, her love of beautiful sentences, and their mutual fear of their hometowns.
