    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.

  • 3D Opera & Diva Accordians rock out in early May!
    by Felice | May 4th, 2010 |

    Those of you in Montreal (how I envy you!) and New York have the opportunity to check out two really interesting interstitial events:

    Les Aventures de Madame Merveille
    a 3D Comic Book Opera! (Wow!)
    Libretto by Cecil Castellucci (Interfictions 2 author and IAF Working Group member)
    Thursday, May 6th & Friday, May 7th
    Maison de la culture Frontenac
    2550 Ontario Est, Montréal
    Tickets: call 514-524-0173

    The Ensemble contemporain de Montreal specializes in multi-disciplinary events. Here’s what they have to say about Madame Merveille: “In this unprecedented operatic production, a comic strip unveils live before your eyes… Singing, illustrations, video projections and staging come together to recount four highly imaginative stories: The fight of a super heroine against the evil Mr. Dégoét, a fifties love story, the detective enquiry of François and his dog Pax and an interstellar combat.”

    See Cecil’s blog for more details and cool art!

    Composer Collaborative’s Serial Underground
    The Subversive Nightclub Series
    featuring Deborah Atherton (IAF Board Member) reading her story, “Life Tenancy”
    Monday, May 10th
    Cornelia Street Cafe
    29 Cornelia Street, NYC

    Serial Underground is a monthly salon for all shades of artists who are trying new things or whose work doesn’t quite fit anywhere else. It’s run by Jed Distler and Celia Cooke, and Deborah will be reading “the tale of a (somewhat) evil stepmother, a hotly contested Madison Avenue co-op, and a man who couldn’t take one more performance of the Nutcracker ballet.” In addition to Deborah, Monday’s event features a diva accordian player (neither of us know what that is!), hilarious performance/theatre artist Ed Schmidt, and composer Giancarlo Vulcano, who recently wrote music for an episode of 30 Rock!

    See the Composer’s Collaborative for further details.
