The Fairfield Review
Meet The Editors
Edward G. Happ
E.G. Happ is editor and founder of The Fairfield Review, Connecticut's first on-line literary magazine. A resident of Norwalk, CT, Mr. Happ is CIO for an international nonprofit charity in Westport, Connecticut. Mr. Happ has been writing poetry for the past thirty years, publishing under the nom de plume of Gordon Edwards. He was a runner up in the 1994 Poet magazine's annual American Chapbook contest, and the 1996 Stamford Ferguson Library Literary Competition. A graduate of the Liberal Arts College of Drew University, he began writing poetry in the eighth grade, at the encouragement of a junior high school English teacher. He is a member of the Lingua North writing group. Mr. Happ writes, "I strive for two things in each piece. On the first reading I want readers to hear something that connects with their own experience. On second reading I hope they see with me the more that is 'enclothed' beneath the common surface."
His poems may be found on our archive pages, under Gordon Edwards, and in three chapbooks: Words for Music, 1997, These Four White Clapboard Walls, 1997, and Lenten Poems, 2004.
Janet S. Granger
Janet Granger is an editor of The Fairfield Review. A resident of Fairfield, CT, Ms. Granger is Marketing Manager for a Stamford, CT based corporation. A graduate of Amherst College, she has been writing since she was a teenager, but began to concentrate more seriously on poetry during the past ten years. She is a member of the Lingua North writing group. Ms. Granger writes, "I am a writer of emotion, trying to catch the moment by the tail."
Her poems may be found on our archive pages, under Janet Granger, and in the chapbooks: Words for Music, 1997. She co-authored the article "On the Stafford Trail," about finding William Stafford's Methow River poems, in our Winter 1999 issue.
Pamela Pollak is fiction editor of The Fairfield Review. Ms. Pollak is a teacher from Southport, CT. A lawyer by training, she tuned her ear for fiction during her years of practicing law. Listening to the highly inventive, frequently amusing and sometimes persuasive stories told by her clients or opposing counsel provided comic relief from the tedium of corporate posturing. More recently she has been refining her own creative writing skills by writing research and reflection papers for a Masters degree in education. She in now working in a local high school, molding the minds of our youth. Ms. Pollak's objective is to help students learn to enjoy reading as much as she does. Beyond that, she hopes to lead children to know that to write well is more desirable than to do so good!"
