    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.

  • Interfictions Auction – Call to Artists
    by Erin | April 27th, 2009 |

    The Interstitial Arts Foundation is pleased to announce the 2009 Interfictions Auction to benefit the IAF and the Interfictions anthology series of new interstitial fiction.

    Artists, crafters, jewelers, musicians, designers, anyone who loves to create art – come be inspired by the stories of Interfictions, and bring us your creativity, your boundary-breaking creations, and your really cool stuff!

    We invite you to create unique portable and wearable art, based on short stories from the exciting new anthology, Interfictions 2 , or from the first volume. It’s a unique opportunity for artists to get a sneak peek at the forthcoming anthology and to put their talent to good use for this year’s fundraiser, which will go live concurrent with the publication of Interfictions 2 in November, 2009.

    The IAF’s 2008 Interfictions jewelry auction was a terrific success, and we’re looking to raise even more funds this year by expanding the artwork you can donate. The only limitation is that donated pieces must be easily worn or carried: it could be jewelry, bags, scarves, small paintings, clothing, calligraphy . . . even songs! The key is to think small and/or portable. All we ask is that each be directly inspired by an Interfictions story. Check out the Interfictions 2 Auctions FAQ for more ideas and information.

    This is a chance for a unique collaboration between writers and artists, a platform for a dialogue between creators in different mediums, meeting at the conjunction of words and art – and bringing together a community of people who refuse to be categorized. Please help us to fund another year of art and words in the interstices of vision, ranging outside the narrow limits of genre limitation to create something new for all.

    Through our network of internet outreach around the auction, your donated work will reach a huge network of people who care, as you do, about breaking boundaries to support Artists Without Borders. In exchange for your donated art work, we offer you the glory and fame that come with having your name and link posted alongside your artwork on our auction page, as well as the sincere appreciation of the IAF, and the knowledge that you are helping to make it all possible.
    To learn more about the auction, how you can help to contribute your art, and to find a story from Interfictions 2 to inspire you, please go to the Interfictions Auction Call to Artists web page.
