Stinging Fly Magazine Submission 2023/2024

You can submit your work to Stinging Fly Magazine and get paid for your written works.

Stinging Fly Magazine 

Our next submission call will be in November 2023 for our Summer 2024 issue.

We will be open for submissions from Monday November 13th until 5pm Irish time on Tuesday November 28th.

Please note that the link to our Submission Form on Submittable will only be available via this page. It will be posted here just before the submissions window opens.

To keep up to date with all our submissions, workshops, readings, and events, we recommend you join our Newsletter.

What We Publish

We publish new, previously unpublished work by Irish and international writers. We have a particular interest in promoting new writers, and in promoting the short story form. Each issue of The Stinging Fly includes a mix of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, alongside our Featured Poets and Comhchealg sections, occasional author interviews and novel extracts. We also welcome submissions of poetry and prose in translation.

We are always excited to read new writers and to hear new voices in literature. Many of the writers we publish have never been published before.

We believe that a proactive approach to diversity and inclusivity is important in redressing imbalances of representation and diversity, both in the pages of our magazine and in the wider cultural landscape. As such, we strongly encourage submissions by writers from underrepresented areas of society.

You can read more about The Stinging Fly and our team on the About Us page.

Submission Guidelines:

Work must be previously unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere.

Only work submitted through our Submittable account will be considered. Submittable is free to use, and there is no fee to submit your work to us.

We currently accept submissions in the following four categories: short fiction; novel extracts; non-fiction; poetry. Writers may only submit work to us under one category per submission period. Graphic fiction and non-fiction submissions are welcome.

Your work should always be just as long (or as short) as it needs to be. If you are sending us a novel extract, please don’t send us your full novel! Just a chapter or a section or a story-length passage will suffice, so long as it can be enjoyed as a standalone piece.

For general poetry submissions, you may send up to 3 poems. Your poems should be submitted together in one single file.

Featured Poets: In each issue we publish a number of poems (usually 5 or 6) by a poet who is working seriously towards a first collection. To be considered, you should already have had work published in several other journals and magazines. We welcome poets who have previously had poems appear in The Stinging Fly. Please send 6-8 previously unpublished poems together in a single file. If we want to see more, we will get back to you. If submitting for the Featured Poet slot, there’s no need to make a separate general poetry submission. We will also consider individual poems within your Featured Poet submission for publication.

Comhchealg: Is í ‘Comhchealg’ cuid Ghaeilge The Stinging Fly. Cuirtear fáilte roimh phíosaí Gaeilge ó scríbhneoirí úra. Is nós linn aistriúcháin Bhéarla a chur ar fáil i gcás na ndánta a roghnaítear. Chuige sin, déanaimid filí Béarla a chur ag obair ar shaothar a gcomhúdar. Leantar na treoirlínte iarratais thuas a bhaineann le filíocht Bhéarla.

All submissions are read. The editors’ decision may not be correct but it is final. We aim to contact everyone within four months of the closing date.
