    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.

    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.

  • NYC IAF to host Interstitial Salon: June 11, 7-10pm
    by Ellen | May 10th, 2009 |

    Artists and enthusiasts are cordially invited to the first NYC Interstitial Salon – an evening devoted to the pleasures of conversation among boundary-crossing artists, writers, musicians, and creators.

    The Conceit: The origins of literary and artistic salons go back to 17th century France, when inspiring hosts and hostesses gathered “stimulating people of quality” together to refine their taste and increase their knowledge through conversation. Today there may be fewer wealthy patrons willing to host an event in their townhouses, but there is always a need for artists to meet other artists, to explore other circles of creative influence, to cross borders.

    The Hosts: The Interstitial Arts Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the study, support, and promotion of interstitial art: literature, music, visual and performance art found in between categories and genres – art that crosses borders.

    Want to host an Interstitial Salon in your town? Post a comment here, or write to INFO(AT)interstitialarts D*T*rg and let us help you get started connecting with other interstitial artists.

    The Special Guests: Delia Sherman, co-editor of the IAF’s anthology series Interfictions, will present short readings from local Interfictions authors – including a Sneak Preview of unpublished stories coming out in November in Interfictions 2!

    The Time: Thursday, June 11 2009, 7 – 10 PM. You may arrive at any time and go whenever need steals you from our embrace.

    The Place: UnWined Wine Bar & Lounge at Symphony Space – entrance on 95th street just west of Broadway (near the Leonard Nimoy Thalia. 1,2,3 trains to 96th St.), between B’way & West End. We have the space along the window reserved.

    The Final Instructions: Bring plenty of engraved calling cards (business cards are acceptable, too!). Bring samples of your art, if it’s portable. UnWined has free wi-fi, so bring your laptop and show off your portfolio or your tunes. Bring friends, and bring a willingness to mingle with strangers — who might turn out to be colleagues, friends, or even artistic soul-mates!

    Please R.S.V.P. here.

    And help spread the word by forwarding or linking to this invite!
