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.”
