Great Regulars: A prolific author and poet, Nurmuhemmet Yasin

was an honorary member of the English, American, and Independent Chinese branches of PEN, an international writers group. He published three volumes of poetry: First Love, Crying from the Heart, and Come On, Children, and his writing is included in Uyghur-language school textbooks.

Nurmuhemmet Yasin's relative also said that she received a letter from him in October "and it seems like his health is looking good."

She said that she knows his handwriting and that the handwriting in the letter was his.
