  • One of the most exciting new literary projects of recent years, Freeman's is the brainchild of literary critic and writer John Freeman, former editor of Granta. Featuring fiction, essays, and poetry from some of the best-known writers around the world and from new voices, Freeman's is a cross between a journal and an anthology—essential for any reader of literary fiction.
  • Freeman’s has partnered with the Literary Hub (over 2 million page views a month) to create a dedicated Freeman’s Channel that hosts content from each issue, new content from featured authors, and other original material.
  • The first four volumes—Freeman's: Arrival (fall 2015), Freeman's: Family (spring 2016), Freeman’s: Home (spring 2017), and Freeman’s: The Future of New Writing (fall 2017)—have been growing a solid fan-base, especially through the indie bookstores. The New School hosted sold-out, 500-person events for Arrival and Family and a 300-person event for The Future of New Writing. The around-the-world promotion of Freeman’s has taken John from Los Angeles and New Orleans to London, Berlin, and Sarajevo.
  • Freeman’s: Power, more than any previous issue, features work from brand new writers, including a provocative essay on sharks and suicide by Nicole Im; a piece of voice-driven memoir by visual artist Jaime Cortez, recommended by Rebecca Solnit; and a literary essay debunking the Stockholm Syndrome from Columbia visiting professor Nimmi Gowrinathan. The issue also includes shorts by Elif Shafak and Eula Biss, poetry by Margaret Atwood and Julia Alvarez, fiction by Tahmima Anam, David Mitchell, and Kanako Nishi, and nonfiction from Barry Lopez and Aminatta Forna.
  • This issue moves beyond the current hot-button conversations about power to broaden and deepen the conversation about this all-important theme, exploring not only its abuses and limiting effects but also the power of kindness, of storytelling, of language, and much more.
  • Freeman’s has been hailed by a wide variety of media outlets (San Francisco Chronicle, NPR, O Magazine, Chicago Literati, and many more). Julia Felsenthal of Vogue heralded Freeman's: Arrival as an “illustrious” new publication. The fourth issue, which featured a global list of writers to pay attention to, was hailed by Marlon James as “the best list of this kind I have ever seen.”
  • Pieces from Freeman's have gone on to be celebrated elsewhere. Tahmima Anam's "Garments" (Freeman's: Arrival) was selected for Best American Short Stories 2016, edited by Junot Diaz, and has been shortlisted for the BBC Short Story Award; Garnette Cadogan's "Black and Blue" (Freeman's: Arrival) was included in Jesmyn Ward's acclaimed anthology The Fire This Time; and Valeria Luiselli’s “Tell Me How It Ends” (Freeman’s: Family) was republished as a standalone volume by Coffee House that is a finalist for the NBCC award for criticism.
  • Contributors to the first four issues include Anne Carson, Haruki Murakami, Lydia Davis, Aleksandar Hemon, David Mitchell, Louise Erdrich, Garnette Cadogan, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Anne Carson, Marlon James, Dinaw Mengestu, Sayaka Murata, Elaine Castillo, Claire Messud, Rabih Alameddine, Danez Smith, Laura van den Berg, and Tracy K. Smith.
  • Freeman’s now has international partners in the UK (Grove Press UK), Australia (Text Publishing), Sweden (Polaris), Italy (Edizioni Black Coffee), Romania (Black Button), and China (Archipel).
