Launch: The Stinging Fly, Summer 2019 issue

The Stinging Fly magazine has been championing the best new writers and the best new writing since 1998, with each issue featuring a lively mix of short stories, essays and poetry. Cork writer Danny Denton, whose debut novel The Earlie King & the Kid in Yellow was published by Granta last year, is the incoming editor and for the past several months he has been busy reading through the 970 stories that were submitted from across the globe for the Summer 2019 issue. Join us to celebrate the arrival of that issue and to hear innovative and compelling work by some of the featured writers. All welcome.
