Granta anniversary

Granta, the leading magazine for new writing, is 25-years old.

In MediaGuardian (free registration required), Editor Ian Jack looks back to its origins and points out that writers are not the only ones who get rejected, it happens to editors too.

In 1979 Kingsley Amis responded to an invitation to write for Granta by saying "Thank you for your letter. I am afraid you are almost certain to be unable to afford me. Anyway, I will proceed on that assumption."
