    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 2 Cover Search in Full Swing
    by Geoffrey | February 9th, 2009 |

    Thanks to the fantastic support of IAF friends, supporters and members like John Scalzi and Cory Doctorow, the Interfictions 2 cover search is exploding into a truly fascinating exposition of interstitial art!

    If you haven’t visited the IAF pool at Flickr, now is a great time to check it out – and if you haven’t submitted your artwork yet, now is definitely the time to do it! The deadline is coming up fast – Monday, February 16th, which is exactly one week from today – so dive into your portfolios and share with us your most wonderful, experimental works. If we select your work to use on the cover of our anthology, you’ll not only receive the honor of having your art grace our cover but a $500 fee as well.

    If you yourself are not a visual artist but you’d still like to help out, please feel free to repost our cover search announcement post to your blog, or e-mail a copy of it (or a link to it) to any artistic friends, relatives or acquaintances you might think would be interested. The notion of ‘interstitial art’ flourishes under a terrifically wide-ranging and expansive banner, so if you’re not sure if their stuff is ‘interstitial’, by all means, send ‘em our way!

    We’re constantly checking our Flickr pool for new additions and we’re just as constantly amazed by the quantity and quality of the stuff that’s showing up there. Check our original cover search announcement post for more details, post any questions you might have to our Flickr group, and good luck!

      Yay, Scalzi! Yay, Cory! I just wish Cory hadn’t headlined that we were looking for PHOTOS, as (a) the art search is not limited to photos, and (b) not every gorgeous photo is interstitial. Many are just, well, gorgeous photos. Can’t say I’m not enjoying looking at them, though, and seeing them pop up here on the home page as they come in!
