If a piece published in swim meet lit mag is published elsewhere, we request that the author credit us with prior publication.

  • Additional info

    At this time, we are only able to pay Australian contributors. However, because we’re a volunteer-run publication committed to paying our contributors, we offer a Tip Jar Submission option with a fee of $3.00 and an option to request detailed feedback on submissions for $12. We also accept donations all year round. Your support means we can continue paying artists. All submissions will be considered with equal weight, but we will move Tip Jar submissions to the top of our queue for an even quicker response! Please include all pieces in one document (.doc or .docx where possible) for written submissions. PDF, JPEG, and PNG files are acceptable for visual and hybrid work. If submitting multiple pieces, please include them in a single submission packet. You will be able to upload multiple files in one submission. If these formats aren’t suitable, please upload a file with a link to your work (wherever you see fit, as long as the editor can access it – but make sure it isn’t publicly available). We also promote our contributors’ work on social media. We aren’t strict about themes, but our editor is particularly interested in submissions from swimmers (current or former), or about swimming – whatever that means to you.
