The Poets

Gordon Edwards is the nom de plume for Edward G. Happ, a businessman from Stamford, Connecticut. Mr. Edwards has been writing poetry for the past thirty years, and was most recently a runner up in both the 1994 Poet magazine's annual American Chapbook contest, and the 1996 Stamford Ferguson Library Literary Competition. He began writing poetry in the eighth grade, at the encouragement of a junior high school English teacher. Mr. Edwards writes, "It is the incarnation of grace in the simplicity of ordinary language and experience, the 'Word ... dwelt among us,' that drives my writing."

Jeanne Fuller is a dancer, choreographer and teacher from Darien, Connecticut. She has been writing poetry since she was a child, and has published in a number of journals and magazines. Ms. Fuller is also an elected member of the International Poetry Society. The impetus for her writing is "always in the woods or by water or meadow--a nature child wondering and needing to say it, to share my wonder."

Janet Granger is a manager in direct marketing from Fairfield, Connecticut. She has been writing since she was a teenager, but began to concentrate more seriously on poetry during the past two years. This chapbook is her publication debut and we look forward to more to follow. Ms. Granger writes, "I am a writer of emotion, trying to catch the moment by the tail."

Fran Levin is a nurse, hospital clown, storyteller, and writer from Westport, Connecticut. Her poem Windows, included here, provides a poignant answer to "what do you do?" Ms. Levin began writing poetry about her patients' feelings "to express what I sensed was their view of things." She has published poems previously in local papers and is also an author of essays and stories.
