    Thanks to 277 generous backers for our Interfictions Indiegogo Campaign, we raised $10,318 by the time our campaign ended at midnight, July 14th, 2014.  When we launched on June 3rd, we were staggered to find donations doubling almost daily, until after about 3 weeks we had reached our original target goal of $8,500, and were able to move on to our Stretch Goal of $10,000. Which means we not only get to publish Interfictions Online for another year, but we can pay our contributors at higher rates now, rates more in line with the effort and talent that innovation requires. Thank you, each and every one of the 277 generous donors who stepped forward to say that interstitial art is valued and valuable. The number of people is as important as the number of dollars raised. We are awed by your generosity. Now our work begins in earnest. We will […]

    INTERFICTIONS issue #3 is up online!

    The editors of Interfictions Online are happy to announce the birth of the journal’s latest issue, on May 22, 2014! The Spring 2014 issue’s non-fiction offerings include Mark Craddock’s poignant collage in Aerial Acrobatics and Gender Reassignment Surgery – A How-To Guide, while Inda Lauryn’s Parallels and Transitions splices analysis of contemporary female vocalists into a graduate school memoir. Isabel Yap’s Life Is Not a Shoujo Manga speaks for itself. And in an interview with Jeff VanderMeer and Jeremy Zerfoss, the two creators discuss their illustrated guide to writing, Wonderbook. The fiction offerings remix tropes from ghosts to automata, with new work by Richard Butner, Su-Yee Lin, Kat Howard, Tade Thompson and S. Craig Renfroe Jr. Several of the poems in this issue reimagine older narratives: Sridala Swami’s AI Winter draws on the Mahabharata, Sonya Taaffe’s Double Business on Hamlet, and Mary Alexandra Agner’s Hypothesis Between Your Ribs on the brief life of Charles Darwin’s daughter.

    ilene_joinThe Interstitial Arts Foundation, unlike many other nonprofit organizations, is entirely run by volunteers. To produce our projects, we rely on contributions from members like you, so please consider renewing or joining us today.

    In 2012, with your help, the Interstitial Arts Foundation:

    • Offered salons and town halls open to all interstitial artists in New York, Boston, and Indianapolis
    • Introduced the new work of exciting interstitial artists to others on our blog and Facebook page
    • Helped our friends and supporters achieve their crowd-funding goals through publicity boosts and sharing of their ideas
    • Continued sales of our groundbreaking international anthologies, Interfictions and Interfictions 2
    • Published Interfictions Zero, a rolling online anthology of interstitial criticism on interstitial texts

    Our newest project is Interfictions: A Journal of Interstitial Arts, edited by Christopher BarzakMeghan McCarron, and Sofia Samatar, with IAF Co-Founder Delia Sherman as Executive Editor. Launching in Spring 2013, this bi-annual, online anthology will grow to include all kinds of art—visual, performing, interactive—that transcends boundaries and refuses to be kept in a box. But to make this all work, we need you!

    We look forward to meeting everyone as we expand across the country and across other boundaries in the arts. We want to invite new ideas, new perspectives, new members, and new and renewed support for the IAF. Your emails, attendance at IAF-related events, volunteering, and financial support have been vital to our success. Please take a moment now and consider making a gift to the IAF, so we can make this year as much of a success as the last– and thank you for everything you have done already!
