The Hebrew edition of Granta Magazine is a publication dedicated to short stories, memories, and reportage, poetry and essays addressing contemporary socio-political issues. Granta brings together original works in Hebrew and Arabic and translated works from Granta – The Magazine of New Writing, established in 1889 at Cambridge University and considered to be one of the most significant literary magazines in English to this day.
The online edition of Granta in Hebrew, features local and translated fiction, literary interviews, photo essays and articles concerning language and culture from well-known writers and artists, alongside new and intriguing voices.
Granta in Hebrew grew out of the independent bookstore, Sipur Pashut, and was initiated by publisher Roni Kramer and editor in chief Mira Rashty. It is one of the 12 international editions operating in the world today.
As stated by Granta editors in London, “Granta does not have a political or literary manifesto, but it does have a belief in the power and urgency of the story and its supreme ability to describe, illuminate and make real”.
The following writers can be found among the many and varied participants whose work has been published in our local edition of Granta so far: Etgar Keret, Orna Coussin, Eli Eliyahu, Mahmoud Arishi, Salman Natour, Simon Adaf, Adi Sorek, Tal Nitzan, Nurit Zarhy, Eudora Welty, Ruth Ozeki, Bassem al-Nbris, Merhav Yeshurun, Aida Nasrallah, Ned Bowman, Doris Lessing, Raymond Carver, Anne Carson, Dorit Peleg, Miroslav Penkov, Rebecca Solnit, Rawya Barbara, David Szalay, Ben Marcus, Lydia Davis, Zadie Smith, Anat Zacharia, Roy Chicky Arad, Tehila Hakimi, Amira Hass and more.
