Welcome to Ambit Magazine.
Our poetry competition will be open from 1 April until 15 July 2018 with the winners announced on 1 September 2018. It is to be judged by Malika Booker and the theme is 'Home'.
Our fiction window is now open from 1 March - 1 April 2018. You can upload one piece of fiction up to 5,000 words, and/or you can upload in one document one to three pieces of flash fiction (up to 1,000 words each). It is free to submit to this category.
Our Ambit Reports window is now open. This is for people who wish to receive paid editorial feedback on their work not for submissions to the magazine. The fee for this is £125.
All work submitted for publication to the magazine must be original and have not appeared anywhere including websites or blogs.
If you don't know the magazine we encourage you to read a recent copy to understand the sort of work we are looking for.
You can find out more about this at www.ambitmagazine.co.uk/submit
Please note that Submittable uses American style dates so don't be confused by them.
We have a new category, Ambit Reports. This is for writers wanting feedback from our editors about their work for which a fee is charged.
Good luck and thank you for thinking of Ambit.
This is a new service from Ambit - a detailed assessment of your work from the Ambit editorial team. We aim to report within 4 weeks of receipt of your manuscript.
The Poetry Editors will look at up to 3 poems (of up to 42 lines each), and will send you a short written report and suggested line edits.
The Fiction Editors will look at one short story (of up to 5000 words), or up to three pieces of flash fiction (of up to 1000 words each), and will send you a written report encompassing such elements as premise, plot, character, setting, structure and style.
We are delighted that Malika Booker will judge this year's competition with the theme of Home.
Please submit your poem in an individual word document attached to your submission with your name, address, email, telephone and title of poem in the cover letter ONLY. Please do not put any identifying details on your poetry pages. For multiple submissions please submit each poem separately. Poems must be unpublished in any form and your original work. No simultaneous submissions accepted.
Each submission costs £6 and if you submit more than 5 poems you will receive a free back copy of Ambit in the mail.
The competition will run from 1 April - 15 July 2018 and winners will be announced on 15 September 2018 and the top 3 winners will be invited to read at our Ambit 234 Launch on 30 October 2018 and their poems will appear in that issue.
Please read our competition guidelines carefully at www.ambitmagazine.co.uk and by making payment and submitting poems you agree to all the terms and conditions of the contest.
Good luck to all!
