There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Welcome to Ambit Magazine.
The Annual Ambit Poetry competition will open on April 15th and close on July 15th. We are delighted that George Szirtes will be judging this year's work on the topical theme of Resistance. Each entry costs £6 and the winning poems will receive cash prizes and be printed in Ambit 230 in October 2017.
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.
