Sarah Maguire died peacefully last night

We are sad to announce that the PTC's founder and Artistic Director, Sarah Maguire, died last night. Sarah was a distinguished poet in her own right, as well as the driving force behind the PTC, where she was instrumental in bringing dozens of the world's best contemporary poets to the UK. Her energy, passion and eye for excellence will be much missed.

A fuller reflection of Sarah's life and work will follow soon. If you have memories you would like to share with us please write to
