    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.

  • Applications are Open for the 2012 Indy Convergence
    by Erin | January 4th, 2012 |

    (Eds. Note: We’ve just received this announcement from IAF Working Group member Ellen Denham, who is working with the  Indy Convergence, the annual 10-day “make-a-wish foundation for artists.” You can also find out more about the Indy Convergence by reading the March 11, 2011 IAF interview with founder Caitlin Swihart — we are very excited about this event and look forward to what this year’s Convergence will hold!)

    Applications open for 2012 Indy Convergence Categories: 2012

    Applications for the 2012 Indy Convergence are now open.

    Deadline to apply with funding is January 15, 2012.

    The Indy Convergence seeks out professional artists with a passion for exploration and a unique talent or approach that will contribute to the ensemble. Participants also have the opportunity to focus on their own genre specific works and are required to teach a workshop that is open and free to the Indianapolis community. The goal of the Indy Convergence is for working artists to gather, collaborate, learn, share and teach.

    The 2012 Indy Convergence will be May 7 -18.

    Over two weeks each artist:

    • Participates in one collaborative “Umbrella Project”
    • Works on one or more personal “Side Projects”
    • Teaches at least one “Workshop” in their field of expertise.
    • The Indy Convergence concludes with a culminating presentation where work is shared in an open lab environment. All workshops and events are open to the public and free of charge.
    • At the core of the Indy Convergence we are “artists at work” — at work in our community and at work with one another.

    *Join us in Indiana this May to share space with other dedicated artists for 2 weeks of open space. *

    *To Apply, visit the application page by **CLICKING HERE**

    *To view video and images from the last convergences, check our archives to see the artists at work!*
