Founded and edited by a diverse, award-winning team of female poets, SWWIM Every Day publishes poems every weekday by cis/trans women, nonbinary, intersex, and other gender-expansive writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, and experiences. SWWIM poems have been included in Best American Poetry, Best of the Net, The Orison Anthology, Poets.org, Poetry Daily, The Slowdown, Substack Reads, The Writer’s Almanac, and Women's Voices for Change, among others.
Tips From the Editor
We welcome free verse, prose poems, formal/received forms, invented forms, visual poems, and experimental work. We especially like to see poetry that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded because of subject matter bias. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we offer residencies and run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all eligible awards. Subscribe for a poem delivered via Substack every weekday and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post work with graphics, announce fee-free submission periods, and give weekly shout-outs highlighting our SWWIMmers' accomplishments.
