Welcome to Ambit Magazine.
The Annual Ambit Poetry competition has now closed for entries. We are delighted that George Szirtes will be judging this year's work on the topical theme of Resistance.  
Winners will be announced on 15 September and be printed in Ambit 230.

Our next poetry submissions window will be open from 1 August - 1 October 2017. You can send up to 5 poems for us to read.
Our fiction window will be open from 1 September - 1 October 2017. 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).

All work 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.
Good luck and thank you for thinking of Ambit.

Ends on November 1, 2017
Welcome to the FREE Ambit poetry submission portal. We are currently reading for our October 2017 and January 2018 issues.
Under our new guidelines this window is open for submissions from 1 January -  1 March  
and 1 August - 1 November each year and any postal submissions will be held and opened during these time frames.  
Send us your best poems, up to five of them in one word document submitted via Submittable, and please only submit once per reading period to give our editors a chance to keep up. 
We did try accepting simultaneous submissions for a while but it really doesn't work for us so please only send work that is original, hasn't been published elsewhere (including blogs and internet).
Our turnaround time varies but we will try and get back to you within 8 weeks.
Please note that Submittable uses American style dates.
