Porter latest to leave Granta

<p>In further upheaval at literary magazine Granta, senior editor Rosalind Porter has been made redundant. Porter&#39;s redundancy this week comes &quot;due to a restructuring in the magazine,&quot; according to Granta spokesperson Pru Rowlandson. Porter declined to comment.</p><p>The development comes as it emerged that Granta Publications finance director Kate Gibb and associate editor Liz Jobey will leave their posts at the end of the year. Granta&#39;s online editor Roy Robins is also set to leave his post. However Rowlandson said the other staff departures were &quot;not connected&quot; to Porter&#39;s redundancy.</p><p>&quot;They all had very different roles and are leaving for very different reasons,&quot; she said.Granta hit the headlines earlier this year when magazine editor Alex Clark and Granta Publications m.d. David Graham suddenly left their roles in May and June respectively.</p><p>Granta&#39;s owner, millionaire philanthropist Sigrid Rausing said at the time that she and husband Eric Abraham would be taking a more &quot;hands-on&quot; role in the enterprise.</p><p>John Freeman, appointed acting editor of Granta magazine following Clark&#39;s departure, was confirmed in the post earlier this month. Ellah Allfrey was announced as his deputy editor in July, joining from Jonathan Cape.</p>
