  • Published in Dublin, 2019 

The Stinging Fly magazine was established in Dublin in late 1997 to seek out, publish and promote the very best new Irish and international writing. It has a particular interest in encouraging new writers, and in promoting the short story form. Two issues each year offer a lively mix of brilliant new fiction, nonfiction and poetry from both new and more established writers.


In this issue:


  • A selection of work from Correspondences, the new anthology calling for an end to direct provision
  • A series of short essays on the topic of money in art, writing, work, and life
  • Six poems from the issue’s featured poet Emer Lyons
  • Fiction by Cathy Sweeney, Chetna Maroo, Aoife Casby and many more
  • Paddy Bushe’s ‘Síscéal/Fairytale’
  • Poetry including ‘South’, ‘cuckoo flower’, ‘Chameleon’, ‘The Book of Showers’, ‘Kakangelism’, ‘Precedence’, and ‘Pathways’
  • Cover art by Shane Keisuke Berkery, plus more art inside
