Saturday, June 25th, 2016

Welcome to defenestrationism reality.

 

Our finalists for the 2016 !Short Story Contest! are announced

Meet the Finalists

Posting Schedule

 

We are equally honored to announce a new Judge for defenestrationism.net contests:

D.E.B. studied history at Bowdoin College, the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and Yale University.  After a decade as an historian with the federal government, he changed careers, first with a job as a boat rigger on Long Island Sound and later serving as chief of staff to a Maryland state legislator.  His literary interests incline toward Lincoln’s writings and the King James translation of the Hebrew Scriptures.  He reads Moby Dick every few years to scrub the barnacles off his brain.

Meet the rest of our Judge Panel
