Granta Editorial Changes

Following the recent decision by John Freeman, Editor of Granta, and Ellah Allfrey, Deputy Editor, to leave their positions, Granta is now searching for a new editor. Publisher Sigrid Rausing is taking on the role of Acting Editor until this appointment is made.

We are delighted to announce that Yuka Igarashi has been promoted to Managing Editor. We are also very happy that Rachael Allen has joined us as our new Online Editor, replacing Ted Hodgkinson.

The editors of the Granta Books team, Laura Barber, Bella Lacey, Max Porter, Anne Meadows, and Ka Bradley, will also be involved in some aspects of the magazine editing process, bringing ideas and taking editorial responsibility for particular pieces.

We wish our departing team members all the best in their new endeavours. We remain as committed as ever to our writers, to our readers, and to continuing Granta’s long tradition of finding and publishing the very best new writing.
