The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Defenestration - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

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.
