We still believe in the allure of “new book smell,” and we are dedicated to producing high-quality print editions of each issue. The publication itself is print-only, but we augment our traditionalist methods with podcasts, social networking, and online reviews. We seek to revive and redefine small press publishing, supporting independent literature in our community and abroad.

The Stinging Fly was established in 1997 to seek out, publish and promote the very best new Irish and international writing. We have a particular interest in encouraging new writers, and in promoting the short story form. The main objective in setting up the magazine was to work towards bringing out a well-designed publication that would provide a forum for the very best new Irish and international writing. That objective has not changed. We believe that there is a need for a magazine that, first and foremost, gives new and emerging writers an opportunity to get their work out into the world. We are particularly concerned to provide an outlet for short story writers:

I get excited by writing that tries new things. When a writer can make that comparison that I wish I had come up with first. When the poem isn’t trying too hard and somehow makes me feel. When a piece is so lovely and gosh darn sensitive to human nature that I can’t help but sigh. I love newness, strangeness, but I equally enjoy traditional poetry, language used in a precise and controlled manner, and when a writer creates a world that I have never seen before. It’s the kind of writing that you know you like as soon as you read it, that lingers, that makes you come back to it and read it again.
We use mainly Indian writers telling Indian stories, across a variety of genres so that the magazine is both entertaining and informative. We also publish translations of Indian regional language writing, as well as of non-Indian languages into English.

Writers interested in contributing to n+1 should note that we come out only three times each year, and that most if not all of the slots available for a given issue will have been filled by the editors many months before publication. That said, if you would like to brave the odds, the best submissions guidelines are those implied by the magazine itself. Read an issue or two through to get a sense of whether your piece might fit into n+1.
Twice a year Silk Road publishes finely crafted fiction, essays, poetry and translations that give readers a vivid point of exchange or an interaction that could occur only in a specific time and space. This event could be captured in a poem or short story as well as in reportage or travel writing. It could happen in a classroom in New Zealand or on the expanse of the African plains. We welcome work set in any location in the world including the U.S. Anyone from anywhere can enter into the conversation. We all start somewhere, so “place” is the touchstone the magazine uses for the pieces we publish. However we operate with no narrow definition of that word. The writers we feature take our readers somewhere crucial, defining and relevant.
