Summer 2016: Citron Six

Letter from the Editor


On the first day of summer we bring you Citron Six, an expanded summer issue with six picks in each genre. Launched on the longest day of the year, this issue brings you lush stories about the complexity of summer. The writers in this issue travel across the nation by highway and train; they stop in cities, music venues, and cafes, and they come back home to live and love. These are stories, as Adrienne Rich wrote, that explore the wreck. These are stories that resurface with a new understanding.

In April there was so much joy at Citron when we published The Queer Issue. It’s now June. This month we celebrate Pride while at the same time we are mourning the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando that killed 49 people and wounded 53 more. All of this is with us on the first day of summer. We have a lot to explore as a nation.

On behalf of The Citron Review, we thank you as readers and writers for sharing your stories with us, and for listening to the stories of the contributing writers.

Robert Carr’s “Anchor” is what happens when the tangible aspects of heritage are missing. The speaker is left holding a telephone cord and the remnants of his mother’s voice getting further away. A concise stack of images begin the poem, taking us back to a time when the simplicity of toys meant family. In Carr’s hands, the poem is rooted and rootless at the same time, and now I reflect on the rotary phone, heirlooms from old houses, and my people. -Eric Steineger Managing Editor/Senior #amreading #TheCitronReview #Spring2019Issue #10thanniversary #cheersto10years https://citronreview.com/2019/03/20/anchor/
