who are we?
swim press is an independent publisher and magazine 
established in 2021 by a group of four Lancaster University 
friends.
we want to give undiscovered and emerging writers and 
photographers a chance to showcase their work and get their
name out there. 
we especially focus on women+ voices.
there is no experience required to submit - we are happy to 
accept anyone's work as long as your work stays within our
guidelines and you have a true passion for your artwork.
we publish a quarterly themed anthology.

swim press was named this way because of our two editor in
chief's desire to write a water-themed anthology.
