    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.

  • IAF fails to amuse
    by Ellen | April 1st, 2011 |

    Despite its recent claim on TwitterIf you take us too seriously, you’re missing the point -  the Interstitial Arts Foundation blog has failed to create a clever piece of bloggery foolery to mislead, bamboozle, and then amuse with a rueful chuckle its readers on this day sacred to the spaces between.

    Editors & contributors attribute this to total burnout from amazing #MarchMadnessIAF, in which 32 new posts were posted in the 31 days of the second-cruelest month, and now everyone just wants to relax by the pool with a Mai Tai.  Unfortunately it is snowing in much of the Northeast, so this, too, remains but a distant dream . . . like the IAF’s dream of world domination, in fact.  Or the dream of unlimited funds, one $25 membership at a time.

    The IAF apologizes for the omission, and invites readers to submit ideas for next year here in Comments.  The winning idea will be posted next year.  If you can hit your deadline.

      Drat! And I was so looking forward to the interview with neurologist and fabric artist Colm Schweemey, who fuses crochet with brain surgery…

      I was hoping for a profile of the ultimate interstitial artist, Buckaroo Banzai!
