Welcome to Ambit Magazine. Our submission window for our poetry and short fiction competition is now closed and the winners will be announced on 1 September 2016.  
Starting on 1 August we will be accepting poetry submissions for our magazine. You can send up to five poems for us to read.
Our poetry window is from 1 August - 1 October but we will be reading for our October issue so we encourage you to submit early.
Our fiction window is from 1 Oct - 1 Nov and we will be reading for our January and April issue. You can send one piece of fiction up to 5,000 words long, or two or 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

Good luck and thank you for thinking of Ambit.

Ends on 11/1/2016
Welcome to the Ambit poetry submission portal.
Under our new guidelines this window is open for submissions from 1 February -  1 April  
and 1 August - 1 October each year and any postal submissions will be held and opened during these time frames.  
In August 2016 we will be reading for our October 2016 issue so sending in early is advised.
We would love to see 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) and we'll do our best to get back to you as quickly as we can. 
Our poetry competition window will be open on Submittable from 1 May - 1 July each year with winners announced on 1 September. 
Please note that Submittable uses American style dates so don't be confused by them.
