Verso announced Wednesday on their web site “the tragic loss of Clara Heyworth, marketing manager” after she was hit by a car in Brooklyn early Sunday. They say she never regained consciousness. “The loss to Verso is immeasurable…. While her primary interest was in publicity she had very strong editorial views and intervened forcefully whenever she felt that by taking on an inappropriate manuscript Verso’s standards would be diluted. A young life so meaninglessly and prematurely truncated pains us all, but we will not forget her or her bright-eyed smile that so often lit an entire office.” Heyworth was married to Verso’s managing director Jacob Stevens.
