    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.

  • What We Did on Our Summer Vacations
    by InterstitialArts | September 23rd, 2008 |

    Hello to all supporters of interstitiality!

    We hope you had a wonderful summer, packed with both Interstitial and vacation fun.
    While you were sunning at the beach (we can but hope) we were toiling away with plans for fall and winter Interstitiality. Here is our report on our summer Board meetings: The IAF Executive Board met for their monthly phone conferences on July 13 and August 24, 2008. Present on one or both dates were: Victor Raymond (President), Ellen Kushner (V-P), Delia Sherman (Treasurer), Kris McDermott (Secretary), Wendy Ellertson, Stephen Segal, and new Board members Elizabeth Genco & Deborah Atherton.
    Here is a digest of those meetings:

    The Board would like to recognize Tempest Bradford for her wonderful work on the jewelry auction, which brought in $1,000 for IAF.
    After a fallow period following the auction this summer, IAF is once more on the move. Upcoming activities will include:

    1. A virtual art show – Wendy is working with IAF Working Group member Carol Burrell to develop a knockout virtual online art show. Wendy and Carol are working on the idea of making a show that can be experienced like a graphic novel. It will follow a story line, using virtual reality, and participants will be able to move around in space. The viewer would enter through a painting, and only then find out what’s behind the walls. IAF would have an art show kickoff with an online salon connected to it, moderated by Kris. We hope to go live by the end of the year.Wendy and Carol are going to work with Stephen to explore the actual capabilities of the IAF Web site for a truly interstitial virtual art show.
    2. Interfictions II – Delia reported that the reading period for the second Interfictions, which she will be editing with Christopher Barzak, will be October 1 through December 2nd. Word is already out on the Web, and submissions have begun to arrive, a little ahead of schedule.
    3. More online salons – Kris is planning the next one for this fall, with a focus on academia.
    4. More live salons – Victor reported on progress with live Salons.
      • Board members are beginning to put together lists of possible hosts/resource people for future Salons.
      • Elizabeth will be working on a Web resource that will help hosts put together Interstitial Salons across the country.
      • Victor and Elizabeth hope to recruit people from the Working Group to work on Salons.
    5. Book Art – A micropublisher might be willing to produce individual books of stories from anthology – we’ll be discussing this more at future meetings
    6. Fundraising Committee – The F/R committee (Deborah & Delia, chaired by Victor, met in July to begin strategizing end-of-the-year fundraising.
    7. More Supporters – Victor will be reaching out to the group of people signed up at WISCON in May. Ellen will be doing the same with the people who attended the IAF “Town Meeting” at READERCON in July.
    8. New Web Committee forming – At Readercon, several people volunteered to help rethink the IAF website and our web presence in general. Stephen is chairing the committee, consisting of Geoff Long, Kris Dikeman, Sarah Smith, Jim Freund.

    Please stay tuned for further developments. We are eager for your input on what has happened so far, and look forward to expanding our activities, with your help, in the upcoming months!
