    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.

    Our next Interstitial Salon will be a discussion with some of the artists — including K. Tempest Bradford, JoSelle Vanderhooft, and Elise Matthesen, plus many more — contributing to The Interstitial Arts/Interfictions Jewelry Auctionimage, which starts today (May 5)!

    We’ll be talking about creating visual art inspired by texts, about the relationships between narrative and wearable art, the cultural history of personal adornment — anything we can think of! Watch this space….we’ll be opening the discussion in about a week (May 12).

    Here’s info about the auction:

    April 30, 2008 is the one year anniversary of the Interfictionsimage anthology release. This groundbreaking anthology showcasing nineteen writers from four countries gave a glimpse into what interstitial fiction might look like (without drawing any clear borders).

    To celebrate the anniversary, the Interstitial Arts Foundationimage (IAF) invited jewelry makers to further blur the borders by creating pieces based on the stories in Interfictions.Many artists responded, including Interfictions authors Leslie What, Rachel Pollack, and K. Tempest Bradford. Other interstitial artists and admirers of Interfictions have come forward with some truly stunning pieces based on the stories by Matthew Cheney, Catherynne Valente, Jon Singer, Veronica Schanoes and Colin Greenland. Participants include artists Elise Matheson, JoSelle Vanderhooft, Mia Nutick, Kris McDermott, and many more. Auction launches on May 5 with two select pieces from Sarah Evans — and all proceeds will go to supporting Interstitial Arts projects, including the second Interfictions volume.
