The Stinging Fly has been working to develop, publish and promote the very best in new Irish and International writing since 1997.

A special extended Galway 2020 issue of the magazine, edited by internationally renowned Irish author Lisa McInerney, with Elaine Feeney as guest poetry editor, will feature all that is great in contemporary Irish and European writing. Inspired by the Galway 2020 themes of migration, landscape and language, the issue will explore, among other things, Galway’s identity as an Irish city, a European city and a place of connection, disconnection and belonging.

Throughout the year, The Stinging Fly will organise a series of workshops and events in Galway City and County, including a launch weekend in November with talks and readings by featured authors and poets.
