    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. With the publication […]

    As outlined in our mission, the Interstitial Arts Foundation is dedicated to the promotion and development of interstitial art. This is accomplished through not only our frequent events, but also through a number of creative projects, including:

    interfictions2_bestof2009_smallThe Interfictions Anthology Series. Launched in 2007, theInterfictions anthology series is the IAF’s print showcase for interstitial fiction. Our first volume, Interfictions, was co-edited by Theodora Goss and Delia Sherman. Our second volume, Interfictions 2, was co-edited by Delia Sherman and Christopher Barzak, and was named one of’s Top 10 Science Fiction & Fantasy Books of 2009. Our current project is Interfictions Zero: The Virtual Anthology of Interstitial Writing and Original Essays, which is now publishing essays monthly in 2011. Please consider submitting one yourself!

    The Annex. The Annex is our online showcase of exclusive interstitial works. We are currently featuring an online companion collection of short interstitial fiction serving as a companion to Interfictions 2, including works from Genevieve Valentine, Brett F. Cox, Kelly Barnhill, Ron Pasquariello, Mark Rich, Kelly Cogswell, Chris Kammerud, and Eilis O’Neal. Upcoming exhibitions will include visual, musical and performance pieces.

    The IAF Auctions. Part fundraiser and part art gallery, the IAF Auctions showcase a number of brilliant artists who have donated works for the IAF to auction off. A previous auction featured pieces inspired by Interfictions, and our next auction features pieces inspired by Interfictions 2.

    Podcasts. Over the years, the IAF and its fellow travelers have produced several podcast projects, which you can find here.

    Please explore each of these projects at your leisure – there are many amazing pieces of interstitial work to be found in this section, and please check back again soon for new pieces (and new projects)!
