The Stinging Fly is 20!
Twenty years ago this week, the first issue of The Stinging Fly was brought into the world. To celebrate, we've made all the stories and poems from our first issue available to read here on our website.
We're also giving you 20% off everything in our shop, for the month of March. Just use the code 'SF20' when you're checking out.
Finally, we are accepting submissions through the month of March from writers who have not been published in print before. If you are a new, unpublished writer you can send us one or two of your poems or a short story before the end of the month.
Sean O'Reilly writes from the inside of things. He has no circumference, no limits. His sentences are riddled, undone and made beautiful by shame itself. This is radical, uncompromised, necessary work. — Anne Enright
