Interjection Calendar
The Interjection Calendar is an online project, devised and hosted by Montez Press. Each month an artist or writer is commissioned to produce a new piece of work for release on our website. The PDF can be downloaded for free and there are 12 releases per year, in line with the calendar theme. At the end of the year the collection is published, demonstrating a diverse range of collaborations and experimental works. The calendar reflects the current importance of online content media, pushing image/text relationships in this domain through contemporary art writing.

The Interjection Calendar 007 is supported by:

2021/07 Mark Schoenfeld – A Million Miles Off


Mark Schoenfeld (he/him) is an ex-evangelical, recovering public school teacher, and disgruntled Texan. His writing seeks to contextualize his experiences within the larger systems that have impacted his and so many others’ lives. Mark lives in Missoula, Montana with his wife and young daughter, where he is pursuing his MFA in Creative Writing.

2021/06 Pete MacHale – Born Actor


Pete is a transgender actor/writer/deviser born and bred in Bristol, trained at Arts University Bournemouth, and currently based in South London. Pete’s work centres stories that feature truthful nuanced portrayal of trans and queer people and their lives, drawing from his own experiences and those that he sees reflected around him in his community. Pete always thinks his writing is very serious and spooky, but he’s often told “this is so funny, good job!” which is also nice. His debut solo show Dear Young Monster is currently in development with The Queer House. Recent acting credits include Dungarees (Dir. Abel Rubinstein,) featured in BFI LFF and nominated for the Best of British @Iris Prize, Gangs of London (HBO/Sky atlantic), and YUNGLBUD’s Mars music video.



Tanaka Fuego is a slam winning, multi- published, international spoken word performer. He is a black, queer artist whose poems cross leaps and boundaries throughout his identity.
