Welcome to Ambit Magazine.
Our poetry submissions window is open from 1 August - 1 November 2017. You can send up to 5 poems for us to read and it is completely free to submit.
Our fiction window will next open from 1 February - 1 March 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). Again it is free to submit to this category.
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.

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. 

Please note:

This service is offered completely independently of our submissions process.  

No preferential treatment will be given to authors who both receive readers reports and submit to the magazine. 

Once a report has been sent, we do not enter into related correspondence.





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.
