Welcome, you are welcome– you’re most welcome
to the

Defenestrationism.net 2021
!Short Story Contest!


We will be taking full credit for the upliftment of humanity over the last months. Our Winter contest healed by cauterization with brimstone– healed as only Art can. Now, this Summer, we rejoice.

For it is an optimistic and lighthearted contest this Summer (by the standards of Defenestrationism reality)–  Art to lift our spirits; Art to squeegee the sweat of panic from our brow; Art to pillow our 3,800,000 aches.

We start with an exaction of the opposite of social distancing, then fly air stubbornly, insistently bubbly and safe. Your threats of Nuclear annihilation? Reign them, in after breakfast. Yes, count the ways– the mul​ti​tudi​nously differing ways we will defenestrate you. We will trudge the Alaskan roadway till it suddenly be smeared with bright color. We will resuscitate, though it slaughter millions. Even ghosts will be haunted. And even demons will offer choice.

Downright sprightly by the standards of Defenestrationism reality. It’ll be fun. Keep surfing through, all you Lovers of Literature.
