In 1951 he moved permanently to England where he worked as a bookseller, journalist, clerk, advertising copywriter and freelance writer reviewing for journals including the New statesman, London magazine, The observer, Times literary supplement, Encounter and the New review. Porter was the author of numerous volumes of poetry and three radio plays, broadcast by the BBC. He was writer-in-residence at Sydney University in 1975 and at New England University in 1977. Most of Porter's work was published in England. In 1990 Porter won the Australian Literary Society gold medal.

Series 1. Notebooks, c.1952-1989

Notebooks kept by Porter containing drafts of poetry, plays, reviews, sketches and other writings. The notebooks are arranged in two sections: poetry notebooks (arranged chronologically) and general notebooks (arranged in the order in which they were listed by Porter). There is some overlap in content between the two sections. Many of the notebooks have been written in from both ends of the book towards the middle.

The following abbreviations are used in this series to indicate publications in which some of the poems later appeared: OBTB: Once bitten, twice bitten (1961); PC: Preaching to the converted (1972); LCC: Living in a calm country (1975); CS: The cost of seriousness (1978); EST: English subtitles (1981)
