Interfictions is the Interstitial Arts Foundation’s anthology series showcasing short interstitial fiction.
NEW! INTERFICTIONS ONLINE
Our newest project is Interfictions: A Journal of Interstitial Arts, edited by Christopher Barzak, Meghan McCarron, and Sofia Samatar, with IAF Co-Founder Delia Sherman as Executive Editor. Launching in Spring 2013, this bi-annual, online anthology will grow to include all kinds of art—visual, performing, interactive—that transcends boundaries and refuses to be kept in a box.
Interfictions Zero, edited by Delia Sherman and Helen Pilinovsky, is an online anthology of seven works of interstitial criticism on interstitial texts, concerning previously published pieces of interstitial writing. The goal of Interfictions Zero is to begin to create a historical context for how interstitial writing affects the growth and development of various literary genres and to work towards a practical definition of Interstitiality.
Featuring original art by M. W. Kaluta.
Interfictions Zero was published online during 2011-2012. We invite you to submit new critical and interstitial work to our new journal, Interfictions Online.
