The Stinging Fly

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Stinging Fly is a Dublin-based print magazine and small press. Our mission is to seek out, nurture, publish and promote the very best new writers and new writing.

The Stinging Fly magazine

We currently publish two issues of the magazine each year. Each issue contains 240 pages of short fiction, poetry, essays and author interviews. We have a particular interest in publishing new writers and in promoting the short story. 

April 2022: we are currently closed for submissions and will re-open again later in the year.

Please check our Submissions Page for updates in the coming months.

The Stinging Fly Press

The Stinging Fly Press publishes single-author short-story collections and multiple-author anthologies. We are not seeking submissions for the press at the moment. If you have written a collection, we advise that you submit a story to the magazine to begin with.
