News of Craig Arnold

As of yesterday evening, the independent search and rescue team on Japan’s Kuchino-erabu-shima had determined that poet Craig Arnold had sustained a leg injury and sometime afterward had fallen from a very steep and dangerous cliff.  The fall left no real chance for survival.

The team was not able to immediately recover Craig’s body, but preparations are underway to make an attempt.

There is a wonderful recording of Craig reading his “Hymn to Persephone” here.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear this. I was lucky enough to hear Craig read his poetry at a poetry slam in Vermillion earlier this year. He was an incredible MC too – funny and lightning quick.
