The Stinging Fly Magazine

The Stinging Fly magazine was established in 1997 to seek out, publish and promote the very best new Irish and international writing.

We believe that there is a need for a magazine that, first and foremost, gives new and emerging writers an opportunity to get their work out into the world. We are particularly concerned to provide an outlet for short story writers: each issue features several short stories and we also devote entire issues to new fiction when the mood takes us.

In 2017, we are moving from three issues to two bigger issues per year. We will publish Issue 36 in April and Issue 37 in October. For information on submitting to the magazine, please see the Submission Guidelines
