The Stinging Fly is seeking submissions for a special issue!

We are currently seeking submissions for our Summer 2015 issue which will have a special theme and focus: London.

Similar to how we did the New York issue in 2011, a good share of the work will be specially commissioned. We want to gather stories, poems and essays that reflect London life and that explore some of the manifold relationships and connections that exist between Ireland and this major world city. We have published many London-based writers in the magazine down through the years and we hope to get new work from some of these writers for this special issue. As ever, we also want to discover new voices.

How to Submit:

Rather than follow our usual guidelines below, we'd ask you to send us an email with a brief introduction and proposal for what you wish to submit.

If it is poetry, please send us no more than two poems (previously unpublished) — pasted into the email or into one attached document.

If it is a short story or novel extract, please send us a brief outline and an attachment with the first two pages of the story (double spaced).

If it is an essay, please send a brief outline that includes proposed word count.

Send submissions to and use SUBMISSION and POEM, STORY or ESSAY in the subject line.

All submissions/expressions of interest must be received by October 31st 2014. We will seek to respond to all submission emails by the end of November.

We would also be very happy to hear from you at this email address if you have any suggestions for writers we might want to feature in the issue — or topics we might want to cover.
