Ellah Allfrey Named Deputy Editor at Granta

1247759281848.jpgThe literary journal Granta has appointed Ellah Allfrey as deputy editor. Earlier this year, editor Alex Clark stepped down, making John Freeman the journal’s acting editor.

Allfrey is a publishing veteran with five years at Penguin Press and six years at Random House. Most recently, she served as senior editor at Jonathan Cape. Over the course of her career, she has edited Carmen Callil, Bettany Hughes and Julian Barnes. In addition she helmed Cape’s growing list of young African writers. Last week, GalleyCat covered the release party for Granta 107.

Allfrey had this statement: “This is a particularly exciting time to be joining Granta. While I am sorry to be leaving Cape, it’s an irresistible opportunity to work on a magazine that has published many of my favourite writers. I am delighted at the prospect of working with John and the team at Granta–finding the very best of new writing and building on the magazine’s reputation as one at the heart of cultural life.”
