Submissions

Have a story worth writing home about?

Want to be featured in Swell?

Are you a local shaker, maker, candlestick maker? Someone talented, creative and deliciously innovative? We want to hear from you! We’re all about local stories told Swell (see what we did there?) and are always on the lookout for projects to fill our pages. 

Writers

The stories you see in Swell Mag are penned by our team of talented writers, but our ear is always to the ground when it comes to great local stories. Have an idea you’d like to pitch? Fancy yourself a bit of a wordsmith? Drop us a line with the details, and samples of your work (as an attachment). P.s… Make sure you’ve read the mag before you submit, and yes we will be able to tell. 

Photographers

The Swell team are very lucky to have our very own photographer capturing the goods for each issue but we do accept a limited number of submissions. If you’ve recently done a shoot that you think might suit Swell Magazine, then we’d love to hear from you. Send through some sample shots, and details of the shoot – including the brands/clothing used, the model’s age and the location of the shoot. We absolutely need these details for the shoot to be considered. 

Illustrators and artists

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!

    “Since the first issue of Swell, I have lived in 3 different cities and 2 different countries. None of which are Newcastle. Each issue makes me want to re-read the one before, just to make it last a little longer. I think it’s the warmth of the people that fill the pages. It feels like going home.

    So, when someone I love needs a pick me up, or to be thanked or just because it’s their birthday, they get Swell. It’s like a reallllly good bottle of wine, even better when it’s shared.”
