Death of Peter Porter

Posted by Angela Jarman, 24th April 2010

The distinguished poet, Peter Porter, died on 23 April 2010, after being treated for cancer. He was a great friend to Arc, having championed and supported the press for many years and having been a member of the Arc Board for the past 5 years. We valued his advice and his wisdom, which he always delivered with gentleness and modesty, enormously, but above all, we valued him as a friend. We will miss him greatly.
