Defenestrationism !Short Story Contest!
Defenestration




Description
This is not a subtle contest. This is a contest of sudden change.

Stories must include an incident of defenestrationism– the art or -ism of throwing people out windows– this need not be literal.

Our team defines such an incident as follows,

“a sudden, immediate, even violent shift, change, or seismical event between the beginning and the end.”
