All good writing is swimming underwater holding your breath. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

This blog will begin in May 2016 when Pells Pool in Lewes – the oldest freshwater outdoor pool in the UK – opens for the season.

It’s a space for those who share my love of cold-water swimming and writing outside, and that weird and deep mental gear which gets both the laps and the lines done.

I’ll be talking from June about opportunities to write guest posts and submit to a print anthology of fine new writing on the life aquatic.

If you’d like to contribute a blog article, you are welcome to email me at

You can read how Pells Pool turned me into a published writer in my Pool section, and get latest updates by following me on Twitter @LidoWriters
