swim meet lit mag 7

About

Getting published is like a competition, which is what inspired the name of our lit mag, but to have a chance, everyone needs to have a lane. However, we are very selective in the submissions we choose for publication and ask that you only submit polished work of the highest quality; in other words, send us something you’d be really proud to see published. We don’t have a strict theme, but our editor is particularly interested in submissions from swimmers (current or former), or about swimming – whatever that means to you. Swim meets bring many people together, and we hope to offer an accessible place for a diverse range of creators to share their work on swim meet lit mag. As a publication focused on local creatives, we’d love to see work that speaks to what home means to you. However, we know that home can be hard to define. With this in mind, swim meet lit mag hopes to be a home for stories that help us make sense of the world and the places we call home.
