Defenestration: December 2021

Dec 20th, 2021 | By | Category: Archives, Editorials, Featured

Let’s get this party started.

Welcome, one and all, the the December 2021 issue of Defenestration: the literary magazine that has been dedicated to humor for so long that we stopped keeping track. (That’s a lie. Eileen has been keeping track. One deep scar on the wall of her living room for every month Defenestration has existed. It looks as if a cat the size of a Volkswagen has been trying to claw its way out of her home.)

This month our collection of stories and poems includes baboons and werewolves, supervillains and superpowers, murderers and… additional murderers. And erotic fan fiction! And also Christmas! So it’s a very eclectic mix. We’ve got some newcomers to the Defenestration family and some folks that have been here before. We hope you enjoy!

One bit of administrative stuff: This week we won’t have any nonfiction (or fake nonfiction) on Wednesday like we normally do, but we will have something for you this Saturday for Christmas, so be sure to stop by again later to check it out.

Defenestration is again open to poetry and short story submissions, because that’s how things work around here. We’re reading for our April 2022 issue, so send us some short stories and poetry that you think are worthy of such an auspicious year. We want to see just how funny you can be!
