The brainchild of renowned literary critic John Freeman (former editor of Granta), Freeman’s is a twice-yearly literary journal that curates new or previously unpublished writing from literary legends as well as work from rising talent. Vogue reported, “Freeman doesn’t just include the work of unknown writers, he ‘smuggles’ them in among A-list talent,” and the BBC called the journal “fresh, provocative, engrossing.” Freeman appears in person to describe how he selects writers for this new journal and what he thinks of the state of literature today. With him to introduce the latest issue are contributors Elaine Castillo, Pola Oloixarac, and Heather O’Neill.
