Hello from Sarah & Kerry (The eds)

We’ve both been lifelong outdoor swimmers, but usually only in the summer….then 2020 happened! Our swimming adventures became a lifeline and we continued into the winter months. It’s safe to say we became a bit obsessed.

Swimming outdoors gives us sanity, calm, joy, camaraderie, confidence and laughter (lots of laughter!). We’ve also found a wonderfully warm, friendly and inspirational community.

We bring all of this together and share it in the form of a magazine: SWIMZINE!

We also support various charities and causes throughout the year. You can find out more here -

A Year of ‘Swimspiration’

Immerse yourself in beautiful art and soulful writing….the next best thing to being in the water.

Just some of the feedback from our lovely readers:

“I never expected that there would be a venue for writing on swimming that is serious, honest, adult, literary, contemplative and high quality.”

“It’s a great read, some great art and great photos. Really Impressed. Should be available on the NHS!”

“Thank you for starting this Zine - I loved the first edition! It was a wonderful mix of beautiful words and images.”


If you’d like to share your swim love, we’d love to hear from you! We put calls out on our social media for submissions four times a year - be sure to follow us so you don’t miss the deadlines.

We are always working on the next edition….

What does outdoor swimming mean to you? Whether its writing, poetry, art, photography or a recipe for your favourite post-swim snack...

If you’d like to submit your work or find out more about submissions we’ve got some guidelines, but you can always email us too.
