In Memory of Doreen Porter
Writers Abroad has sadly lost another member this year. Doreen Porter passed away on Sunday 15th November following a heart attack. Although we knew that Doreen had suffered from health setbacks she had bravely got on with her life, baking, painting, playing Scrabble online and of course, writing. Doreen was a central member of Writers Abroad and produced the WA magazine. Our condolences to her family and friends. And here are a few thoughts from WA members about our friend, Doreen.
