We’re looking for writing submissions of short stories, poems, personal essays or excerpts (that stand alone) from any genre. We’re willing to consider any form of writing that is well-written and from the heart. We especially love writing that has some connection to writing for wellness – narrative medicine, medical memoir, writing the self, healing writing, etc.
- Local Histories: preserves and expands cultural memory in its diversity, especially valuing neglected and alternative histories.
- Health and Wellness: places special emphasis on physical, spiritual, and environmental well-being; the series also gives voice to practitioners of holistic and alternative medicine.

We are especially interested in considering manuscripts with close ties to Arkansas.
Query by email about your complete manuscript only. No novels, please. Primarily interested in nonfiction (especially memoir), poetry, and children's titles. Will consider anthologies, photo essays, chapbooks, and experimental forms.
Founded by Catherine Esposito Prescott and Jen Karetnick, SWWIM Every Day publishes one poem every weekday from women and women-identifying/femme-presenting writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, expressions and experience (emerging to internationally acclaimed). Poems are also delivered to in-boxes via subscription. The editors enjoy everything from prose poems to free verse to prosody; however, the digital platform excludes formatting some highly visual or extremely experimental pieces.
We welcome poems on a variety of themes or subjects. We especially like to see work that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded by the patriarchy. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all award anthologies and prizes. Subscribe for a poem delivered to your in-box every weekday to get a sense of our aesthetic and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post all the work and announce fee-free submission periods.
