Welcome to Ambit Magazine.
Our poetry window will open from 1 January to 1 March 2019, and our fiction window will be open from 1 February to 1 March 2019 when we will be inviting your submissions for consideration for Ambit. Due to the volume of work we are receiving and the fees that we pay to Submittable we are now charging a £2.50 admin fee per submission. If you are unwaged or a student we are happy to waive this fee - simply enter your work in the category we've set up for this and you won't have to pay. All categories are read by the same editors so there is no difference between them. To sign up for our mailing list to keep informed of our work please email email@example.com with the word 'YES' as the subject line and we will be happy to send you details of our events and windows once a month.
The Ambit Reports option 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.
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.
