Louisville Public Media Raises Funds for Fiction Focused Radio Show

Louisville Public Media has raised $4,000 on Kickstarter to fund their short fiction-focused radio show called Unbound. The organizers plan to use the money to cover the costs of production. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Our goal is to help give fiction fans and writers a space to connect through public radio. The communal aspect of a public radio show brings reading outside of living rooms and university classes and into the public space, encouraging community-wide discourse on the importance of literature in our daily lives.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
