The Ember is an online platform offering long form reviews and critical essays relating to the arts and humanities (mostly in Australia). The site is independent and non-commercial and all the content is free.
The Ember is intended to offer an alternative to the increasingly transitory nature of criticism in the mainstream media. We believe engaged and rigorous criticism that speaks to a general audience is vital, and we see less and less of it around. We encourage submissions from specialists who are keen to engage a broader audience and from critical writers waiting to make their way into the established arts media.
