SWEPT WANTS YOUR ORIGINAL CONTENT

We are looking for: short articles, feature articles, journals, news photography, creative photography, mini-documentaries, short stories, poems, visual and digital art, story suggestions – pretty much any content that you think is awesome.

All contributors must be willing to work with the editors should editorial issues arise (mistakes do happen).

We expect observance of objectivity and journalistic ethics.

All written content is published on a first rights basis. We request credit for first publisher rights, and the contributor is free to do what they want with the content post-publish.

Photography and artwork is published using one time use rights.
