John Freeman Leaving Granta

Editor John Freeman is leaving Granta after five years at the literary journal.

He served as editor for the last four years, creating ten foreign language editions of the journal around the world. The journal will launch in Turkey and China this week, with editions in Portugal and Sweden next month. Here’s more from the release:

The total global circulation of the magazine will be 100,000 when Japanese Granta begins publishing next March. Under his editorship, the magazine also conducted more then 300 events in over 25 countries, earned more than a dozen citations in the Best of American anthologies, and won D&AD awards for cover design. Freeman divided his time between New York and London and will be moving back to New York, where he will teach creative writing at Columbia University and publish his second book, “How to Read a Novelist.”
