Contribute to Swell Magazine

Swell Magazine accepts submissions of photography, illustration and written work. However, before contacting us, we firstly ask that you have read Swell Magazine and understand our style and content. Before you submit, you must be aware that that we are an independent magazine, so budgets are limited and we are a Newcastle based magazine which showcases local talent and businesses only.  


Most of Swell Magazine’s written work is by our team of excellent copywriters, but if you have an idea for a specific article, whether complete or a pitch, then please email us with a few details and samples of your work. Please keep emails brief and clear and attachments as simple as possible (a simple .doc format or PDF is preferred).


We have our very own amazing photographer, but we do accept a limited number of submissions. If you have done a shoot that you think may suit Swell Magazine, then by all means feel free to contact us with some sample shots and details of the shoot – including the brands/clothing used, the model’s age and the location of the shoot. The submission will not be considered without these details.


We are always open to the work of new talents. A simple email with some examples of your work and/or a link to your website or blog would be great!

All submissions should be sent to:
