    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.

  • Supporting Interstitial March Madness & the IAF
    by Erin | March 31st, 2011 |

    This is the last day of our Month of Interstitial March Madness blogging. We hope these discussions of their work and daily challenges has given you a taste of what interstitial artists are doing all over the world.

    But thirty days of offering artists a platform to introduce you to their work is only a part of what the Interstitial Arts Foundation does. Our mission is to study, support, and promote interstitial art: literature, music, visual and performance art found in between categories and genres—art that crosses borders—and we do it through this blog and web site, which offers ongoing discussions, essays, and information for artists and audiences; through our artist’s salons, which offer artists all over the country an opportunity for networking and community; through our publications, which include the groundbreaking Interfictions One and Interfictions Two anthologies, our Interfictions Study Guide for using them in classrooms, and now, Interfictions Zero, our online anthology of  interstitial criticism on interstitial texts.

    The Interstitial Arts Foundation was founded by and is run by artist volunteers, but like every nonprofit organization, we need support to keep the (virtual) doors open.  We’re excited to see new faces every time we host a town meeting or salon, and to see our community grow, and we invite you in joining us to help keep that community expanding. We know that artists have to think about every dollar they spend; but, if you’ve enjoyed this month of March Madness, we ask you to spend $25 of those hard won dollars to become a Friend of the IAF at https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=35073. For those of you who can give a little more, please know that every penny spent goes to maintaining services for artists.  We have a lot of big plans for the future, including an expanded web site, more salons, more town meetings, more readings and concerts, and the creation of an international network and presence that we hope will help ease some of the challenges of fighting for your dreams alone.  It’s our hope to make being an interstitial artist a little bit easier; please make whatever contribution you can, and, most importantly, please join us when we come to a location near you to celebrate the interstitial arts!
