This year is proving to be an active and exciting one for the IAF: we’ve created an online anthology of critical essays on interstitial literature, released a free teaching resource for Interfictions 2, and offered a month of daily interviews and reviews. Come see what we’ll be doing next!
Despite its recent claim on Twitter – If you take us too seriously, you’re missing the point - the Interstitial Arts Foundation blog has failed to create a clever piece of bloggery foolery to mislead, bamboozle, and then amuse with a rueful chuckle its readers on this day sacred to the spaces between.

DEAR March, come in!
How glad I am!
I looked for you before.
— Emily Dickinson
Welcome to March Madness at the Interstitial Arts Foundation, Second Edition.
To celebrate the interstitial in the arts is to toast accomplishments that succeed in new space, that proceed as if the boundaries of discipline and category weren’t even there.
To address the concept in [...]
Editors Delia Sherman and Helen Pilinovsky are now reading submissions for Interfictions Zero, a rolling online anthology of interstitial criticism on interstitial texts.
Every month, an original essay will go up on the Interstitial Arts website, concerning some previously published piece of interstitial writing (hyperlinked where possible). The goal of Interfictions Zero is to begin [...]
A Message from outgoing IAF president Ellen Kushner
January saw a lot of changes for IAF, centered around a big Executive Board meeting held MLK weekend in Boston.
On January 16th, the entire** Executive Board met at the Boston home of Board member Wendy Ellertson for our first ever face-to-face meeting (We do [...]
When I think of interstitiality, I think of ‘between-ness’, of things ‘neither’ or ‘both’. Today is the first of March, which is a very interstitial month – too warm to be winter, too chilly to be spring. I consider September the other most interstitial month of the year, but whereas September is crisp [...]
It’s been a long time coming, but today we’re proud to unveil the new Interstitial Arts Foundation website!
A Platform For Interstitial Arts
In many ways, this new website is a blend of our previous two websites, with an eye on developing a platform for future expansion. Two websites ago, the IAF site featured a large [...]
Interfictions 2 is off to the printers – thanks to the Friends of Interfictions, who’ve already contributed over $10,000 toward the Interfictions 2 anthology (coming Nov. 3) and the Online Annex (coming Sept. 15th to this website)!
Our experiment in crowdfunding uncategorizable art and fiction continues, as we still need to raise $9,000 to support our [...]
The Interfictions 2 Auction, sponsored by the Interstitial Arts Foundation, is well underway, with over twenty artists already committed to creating original pieces of art based on the Interfictions anthology series of original interstitial writing. We have a great team of volunteers working on every aspect of the auction, from sending out stories to maintaining [...]
We got a fantastic array of work from artists who responded to our search for interstitial images for the cover for our upcoming anthology, Interfictions 2: over 300 images showed up at the new IAF Pool at Flickr.
Many of them were seriously considered, but we can only do one cover, and in the end editors [...]
Interfictions II will be edited by Delia Sherman & Christopher Barzak. It will be published by Small Beer Press under the auspices of the Interstitial Arts Foundation in the Fall of 2009.

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 [...]
