The Stinging Fly

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Stinging Fly is a Dublin-based print magazine and small press. 

We currently publish two issues a year. Each one contains 224 pages of short fiction, poetry, essays and author interviews. We have a particular interest in publishing new writers and in promoting the short story. 

Read our full submission guidelines here.

We are not seeking submissions for the magazine at the moment. We will update the information here and on our website when next we are.

Essays and interviews are commissioned. We pay a fee for stories, poems and other work. Contributors also receive a free copy. 

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.
