Defenestration 111

About

Defenestration is a humor magazine. We don’t worry about the particulars of genre, style, or form as long as the work is funny. What exactly constitutes as “funny” varies from person to person, but we try to publish a wide range of humor, from the ridiculous to the satirical, and everything in between.

Nonfiction Open

Non-fiction includes what we call “fake” non-fiction. Think of it as fiction that reads like non-fiction. This can include anything from reviews of non-existent books, interviews with imaginary people, bogus letters to the editor, etc. Use your imagination. If you’re unsure whether your piece falls into this category, send it to us anyway. We’ll sort it out.

Poetry Temp Closed

Both free-form poems and highly-structured poems. We’re just as likely to publish blank verse as we are sestinas, sonnets, and haikus. We’re also convinced that rhyming poetry isn’t quite as dead as some people would like to believe, but a well-crafted rhyme scheme is preferable over something more simplistic. Forced rhymes are a huge turnoff.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
