Marion Kingston Stocking, 1922-2009

This is news from Lee Sharkey at Beloit Poetry Journal:

Marion Kingston Stocking, long-time editor of the Beloit Poetry Journal, died peacefully on May 12 after a four-month bout with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. During her 56-years with the BPJ, a tenure unequaled, we believe, in small-press literary publishing, Marion wrote 198 reviews and helped to shepherd 225 issues of the journal into existence.

Since the hole she leaves as editor, friend, engaged citizen, and mentor is too big to fill, we’ll have to carry her with us as we go about living fully and generously.
