Granta promotes Ka Bradley and Sinéad O’Callaghan

Granta has promoted Ka Bradley to commissioning editor and Sinéad O’Callaghan to assistant editor.

Previously junior editor, Bradley is promoted to commissioning editor, having joined Granta in 2012. Recent acquisitions and publications include Jeremy Atherton Lin’s Gay Bar: Why We Went Out, poet A K Blakemore’s début novel The Manningtree Witches, Jesse Ball’s The Divers’ Game, The Collection by Nina Leger and Daisy Lafarge’s Betty Trask award-winning début novel, Paul. Other titles she has worked on include Brilliant Maps by Ian Wright and Strange Heart Beating by Eli Goldstone.

Publishing director Bella Lacey said: "Ka is a hugely talented editor, a dedicated champion of her books who brings care and creativity to all her publishing and has a distinctive and excellent taste. She’s very well deserving of this promotion and I’m delighted that she will be growing her list of authors at Granta."

Meanwhile O’Callaghan (above left) has been promoted from editorial assistant to assistant editor. Having joined Granta in 2018, O’Callaghan oversees the Granta Editions series and works closely with Lacey.

Anne Meadows was appointed to editorial director at Granta last September, almost a decade after joining the independent publisher.
