    IAF INTERFICTIONS ONLINE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN ends above target goal

    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.

  • Atlanta Fringe Radio Call for Submissions: March 30th, 2012
    by Felice | March 12th, 2012 |

    Fringe festivals in general are friendly to interstitial artists, and the Atlanta Fringe Festival, bursting into existence on May 9th of this year, looks like it will be a wonderful and enduring venue for interstitial artists in years to come. Its mission is even “to bridge the gap between the fine and performing arts by showcasing nontraditional works that push audiences to gain new perspective on diverse and multi-cultural artistic expression.” The organization has also held free workshops for artists, on such topics as grant-finding and corporate fundraising.

    I unfortunately found out about the Atlanta Fridge too late to alert you of regular submissions. (There are alternate ways to perform, including Bring-Your-Own-Venue and the Free Area.) But I did want to point you to the festival’s Fringe Radio station, which is accepting submissions until March 30th, in the three interesting categories of Radio Plays, Storytelling, and Sound Art. Check it out!

    Their submission methodology is unusual. They are accepting 25 submissions per category: first-come, first-served. Audience members will purchase passwords to listen, and based on the number of clicks for each show, the artist will be paid a percentage of the radio fees. So — a “crowd-curated” show? What do you think of this method? Do you think there should be an initial screening process? Or do you think first-come, first-served best serves the artists?
