NEW EDITOR FOR AMBIT MAGAZINE
Ambit, one of Britain’s most influential
arts magazines, is about to have its first new editor. After 52 years at the
helm founder Dr. Martin Bax steps up to become Editor Emeritus, with the
day-to-day responsibilities for the magazine passing to new Editor, Briony
Briony is the daughter of the late poet Adrian Mitchell. She takes
the reins, along with a new young editorial board, with a remit to retain the
eclectic excellence of Ambit while simultaneously re-invigorating the magazine
with more poetry readings, digital offerings, educational events and festival
Ambit has become a byword for encouraging the best emerging
talent on the British literary and arts scene. Over the years it has featured
literary pioneers such as JG Ballard, Peter Porter and Adrian
Henri, along with artists like Sir Peter Blake, David Hockney and Sir Eduardo
As Briony Bax puts it 'Martin is going to be a hard act to
follow but I’m honored and delighted to have been asked to be his successor.
I’ve been a long-time subscriber, a contributor and a fan and I am looking
forward to taking Ambit back to its roots – to find new talent in poetry, short
stories and art.'
