Ambit magazine is a literary and artwork quarterly created in London, published in the UK, and read internationally. It’s available through subscription and in selected bookshops and libraries worldwide.
In 1959 a London Paediatrician, Dr Martin Bax, diagnosed Angst and Ennui as the prevailing mood. He prescribed ambit magazine: poetry, fiction and art – sometimes shocking, sometimes experimental sometimes comic, always compelling – plus a small dose of unstuffy poetry reviews.
The Ambit consultants:
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. Mike Foreman tracks down the pictures while designer John Morgan makes sure that Ambit retains its reputation for visual seduction.
Still a non-profit making magazine, Ambit is still going strong after more than 40 years of publishing.
