Defenestration: April 2010

Apr 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Archives, Editorials, Featured

The wait is over. Welcome to the April 2010 issue of Defenestration!

We changed this year. New look. New format. We’ve been publishing columns, comics, and non-fiction all year, but now it’s time for the poetry and prose to explode from our virtual pages. This is the first of three Defenestration issues that will appear this year, and it’s ten kinds of excellent. We recieved a lot of great submissions during our first reading period, and we chose the best of the best.

I don’t want to say that this issue “has it all,” but it’s pretty damn close. You could go down your internal list of Awesome Things and find a good chunk of them here. This issue has monkeys and robots and ghosts. A Norse god. A faerie queen. Love. Sex. Amusing typographical errors. And a few ducks thrown in for good measure. If you’re not pissing yourself with anticipation, then you’ve come to the wrong place–The Magazine Full of Lame Crap No One Wants to Read is three doors down and full of dorks.

You can explore the April 2010 issue of Defenestration from our front page, or you can follow the links below. This issue is also available as a free downloadable .pdf file that you can take with you or print of do whatever it is you do with one of these things.

And starting today, we are once again open to poetry and short story submissions. We’re reading for our August 20th issue. This reading period ends August 5th. Send us your best!
