    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.

  • Attention all Interstitial Extreme Action Heroes!
    by Wendy | April 8th, 2010 |

    In a March 22nd blog post, we contemplated the interstitiality of Acroyoga….If you found that fascinating, and have always wanted to fly as much as I have, check out what Elizabeth Streb is up to these days with her Extreme Action Company: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gK-O95c5E8

    The Company website is: www.streb.org

    She’s launching her new book, How to Become an Extreme Action Hero, with a “lively and unconventional presentation” in New York City on Wed, April 21, 6:30 pm at CUNY Graduate Center, Proshansky Auditorium, 365 Fifth Ave. (at 34th Str.)
    To quote the PR:

    Elizabeth Streb has been testing the potential of the human body since childhood. Can she fly? Can she run up walls? Can she break through glass? How fast can she go? In her new book Streb: How to Become an Extreme Action Hero, she conveys how she developed a form of movement that’s more NASCAR than modern dance, more boxing than ballet.

    Join us for the launch of the book, in a lively and unconventional presentation. MacArthur Prize-winner Streb describes how she became an extreme action choreographer and how she defies the laws of physics. Her new book, published by The Feminist Press, is for those who try or are willing to do just about anything to become a hero in their own way. Once called the Evel Knievel of dance, in 1985 she founded STREB Extreme Action Company, which performs internationally in theaters, museums, and town squares. She established S.L.A.M. (Streb Lab for Action Mechanics) in Brooklyn.

    FYI – If you want to get even closer to the action, head on over to their rehearsal space in Brooklyn which is open to the public. As they say on their website:

    “You are welcome to come and watch classes and rehearsals. We rehearse Tuesday through Friday from 11:30-3:30 pm. Location: 51 North 1st Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211

    “Come in and watch the process as it unfolds and if you have a great idea let us know. STREB believes that the cross section of activity in our space feeds the creativity. Bring lunch and use our WiFi!”

    Then……..report back to all of us at IAF!!!!!!
