About The Fall 2007 Edition

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the Fall 2007 issue of The Fairfield Review. It has been too long since we last wrote you. We appreciate your patience. This was to be the spring issue, but kept slipping past evenings and weekends sacrificed to the corporate gods...
such is the lament from the modern den of days, the workplace.

We are
catching up with all the wonderful submissions we received for our Anniversary Issue and will devote a good portion of the holiday breaks to bring it to you soon. If you sent us work for this special issue, or for the Winter Issue, nee Fall 2007 Issue, we appreciate your patience for a while longer.

Autumn has moved from October to November in Connecticut; we have given up trying to guess when the show of leaves will crescendo. We have had a frost or two but still the leaves riot in the trees. Other than the portent of global warming, we are grateful for the replacement of November's cold, bleak rains.

We welcome many new writers for our readers in this issue. Thirteen of our fifteen authors for this issue are new to
The Fairfield Review: three are teachers (two are former teachers,) three are students (two are recent graduates,) and one is publishing poetry for the first time. We are pleased to include, once again, Aaron M. Rudolph and Kelley Jean White who appeared in recent issues.

Our classic poem for this issue is
November by Walter de la Mare.

Editors' Choice Awards go to Lynne Potts for her poem Brown Overcoat, and Christian Ward for his poem Marine throwing hand grenade. Information about all our contributors may be found on our About the Authors page.

As in recent issues, we are offering a simple link (below) to our Table of Contents rather than the "narrative tour" through the issue. Let us know if you prefer this format; send us your comments and suggestions for future issues by filling out our Guest Book or dropping us a note via email to fairfieldreview at hpmd dot com **

Thank you to all have supported The Fairfield Review with your donations, but importantly by your reading and telling others. We continue to receive encouraging feedback on our first printed publication: The Best of the Fairfield Review: 1997 - 2002. The book, which highlights our favorite offerings from our first six years, is available on-line. Please take a peek, and order a copy for your summer reading. Your support goes directly towards the continuation of our free, on-line publication, and we thank you for your ongoing interest and enthusiasm on our behalf.

Starting with our Winter 2005 issue, we have changed the closing dates for submissions. Based on your feedback and the volume of work we are now receiving, we agreed that it was too long from the time authors sent us their work and when they heard our final decisions. Closing dates for the Winter issue are now September 30 and for the Summer issue March 31. Our reading cycle will start thereafter and run for 90 days (evening hours permitting. )

January marks the close of the eleventh year of our on-line journal. We are grateful to you our loyal readers. Best wishes to you and yours for the holidays and New Year. Stay warm, enjoy good company, and write often.

p.s. We had the pleasure of hearing Billy Collins read at Sacred Heart University today. You can read our notes in The Fairfield Review Discussion Forum.
