Ambit is a 96-page quarterly literary and art magazine. It is created in London, published in the UK, and read internationally. It’s available through subscription, in selected bookshops, and in libraries worldwide.
The magazine is put together entirely from unsolicited submissions.Perfect for new and emerging writers, like most of us.
Over the years, from small beginnings, the team has come together. Edwin Brock was joined by Carol Ann Duffy and Henry Graham to pick the poetry, and JG Ballard was joined by Geoff Nicholson to pick the prose. In 2013 Dr Martin Bax retired and a new editorial team took the reins.
If you decide your work is right for Ambit then log on to their submissions portal and send up to 5 poems in one Word document, or 1 story up to 5000 words in length.
Ambit are ‘very enthusiastic about flash and very short fiction too which is under 1000 words that have not been published elsewhere including blogs and internet. Our portal opens twice a year on February 1st and September 1st. See Submittable for full details.’
