    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.

  • Brunswick Interstitial Art Salon – Event Update
    by Erin | July 22nd, 2009 |

    The Brunswick Interstitial Art Salon was a spectacular success! More than 30 writers and artists showed up at the Frontier Café for an evening filled with dinner, drinks, and some fantastic interstitial fiction.

    Nearly 20 speculative fiction writers from around the country attended the Salon as the dates coincided with the Stonecoast MFA residency in Freeport, which exposed many of these writers to the Interstitial Arts Foundation for the first time. The Frontier Cafe was warm and welcoming, and the perfect environment for people to mix and mingle.

    Ellen Kushner opened the night with a brief introduction to the crowd, telling them about the work of the IAF, the purpose behind the Salons, and our upcoming anthology Interfictions 2. Later, Delia Sherman introduced our special guests Catherynne Valente from Interfictions and Will Ludwigsen from Interfictions 2 who both gave short readings, which made a lot of people say, “Where are the books? I want the books.”

    For those of you who want to purchase Interfictions, it’s available now through Small Beer Press: Interfictions 2 will be available for pre-sale soon and will be published in November 2009. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, checkout the photos from the Brunswick Salon.

    All in all, the Brunswick Interstitial Art Salon was a fun event that kept people hanging out and making friends well after the event was scheduled to be over. It was a terrific evening thanks to everyone who attended.
