Yesterday, we were sorry to hear of the passing of poet and translator Malinda Markham from the Freedom in Harmony blog:

The sad news arrived today that award-winning American poet and translator of avant-garde Japanese poetry Malinda Markham, formerly based in Japan, took her own life on Sunday in her apartment in New York City. Our sincere condolences to Malinda’s family and friends, as well as to her poetry friends and community here in Japan. May her soul rest in peace.
