Welcome to Ambit Magazine. 
Our current poetry window is open now from 1 January - 1 March 2017 and we will be reading for our April and July issues so we encourage you to submit early. You can send up to 5 poems for us to read. Jee Leong Koh will be our Guest Poetry Editor for our April issue.
Our fiction window is from 1 February - 1 March 2017 and we will be reading for our July and October 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
Please note that Submittable uses American style dates so don't be confused by them.
Good luck and thank you for thinking of Ambit.

Welcome to the FREE Ambit poetry submission portal. 
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.  
The January 2017 window will be read firstly by our Guest Editor for Ambit 227 (April) Jee Leong Koh and then by Ralf Webb and the regular Ambit Assistant Poetry editors for Ambit 228 (July).
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.

Welcome to the FREE Ambit Fiction submissions portal.
We accept prose pieces between 1,000 and 5,000 words. Please submit one piece of fiction per reading period. Stories must be original and have not been published anywhere else including on blogs, websites and via radio, as well as in print formats. We accept work from 1 September - 1 October and again from 1 February - 1 March each year. We try to get back to you as quickly as possible, usually between 4-8 weeks.  In February 2016 we will be reading for July and October issues in 2017.
We strictly do not accept any simultaneous submissions. We do not read novel extracts, we are looking for stand-alone short stories.
Please include name, address and word count with your submission.
The best way to see the work we publish is to order a copy of Ambit at http://www.ambitmagazine.co.uk/ 
Thanks for thinking of Ambit.
