Support The Stinging Fly

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 and patrons, we’re still doing that over twenty years later.

We publish two magazines and two books each year. Subscribers can choose to receive the books, the magazines, or both together. 

Stinging Fly Patrons receive both the books and the magazines. By making an additional contribution, above the cost of a subscription, patrons help to boost our writer development programme, which includes workshops, seminars and mentoring.

All subscribers and patrons receive exclusive access to our online archive, which includes over 2000 stories, poems, and essays taken from every issue of the magazine.
