The National Centre for Writing is honoured to host a day of workshops and events in celebration of 60 years of Ambit magazine.
Join us as we kick off Ambit’s 2019 anniversary tour of the UK as they showcase their archives and speak to writers who received their first big break through the magazine.
Ambit is a London-based 96 page literary and art magazine that features poetry, prose and art. They strive to feature fresh voices and visions from across the world, placing first-time writers alongside giants of the scene.
Started in 1959 by the London paediatrician Dr Martin Bax, the magazine helped discover and establish Edwin Brock, Carol Ann Duffy, JG Ballard, Eduardo Paolozzi, William Burroughs, Fleur Adcock, Liz Berry and Sir Peter Blake among others.
