Support The Stinging Fly

Please Note: The Stinging Fly offices will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday, December 16th. Any subscriptions taken out after that date will be shipped when we reopen in January.

Gift subscriptions will still be activated, and the recipients notified, on the chosen date. Their first issue will be posted out in January.


The Stinging Fly magazine was established in 1997 to seek out, publish and promote the very best new Irish and international writing. Thanks to the support of our subscribers, we’re still doing that over twenty years later.

The Stinging Fly publishes two magazines and two books each year. Supporters can choose to receive the books, the magazines, or both together. Stinging Fly Patrons receive both the books and the magazines. All supporters receive exclusive access to our online archive, which includes almost 2000 stories, poems, and essays taken from every issue of the magazine. All prices include postage.
