Swim magazine is always on the lookout for talented new contributors.
Our main criteria for anyone submitting article ideas or illustrations to us is that it fits with the style and message of the magazine, so please make sure you are familiar with the title before submitting.
Swim is the brand new lifestyle magazine for everybody who loves swimming.
If you have previous writing or journalism experience then we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us with a brief overview of your background and experience, along with links to some of your work and any ideas that you have for articles.
Keep in mind that Swim has an international readership. Word counts for all sections range from 850-2,000.
Please describe your proposal, why you want to write it, what qualifies you to write it (include URLs to previously published examples of your work), and which experts you plan to interview for the piece (unless you are fully qualified to write about the subject matter). You may also submit finished articles for consideration.
Lead time: Feature pitches can be submitted a few months out.
Feedback: We will be in touch ONLY if your idea is suitable for Swim. As much as we would like to feed back personally, we only have time to respond to submissions that are likely to run in a future issue of the magazine. If you do not hear from us on this occasion, please don’t let it deter you from pitching new ideas.
