Fall 2011: Editor’s Choice

1

Letter from the Editor


If The Citron Review looks a little different this time, it’s because it is. We’ve decided to take an issue to put up some of our favorite publications from past issues. We even threw in a few new ones, just for fun. Our hope is to clarify what we look for in a submission, and to celebrate those submissions that have helped to define Citron as a journal of great literary merit. We’re establishing a reputation as a top-tier literary magazine, in large part because of the quality of submissions our contributors have sent in.

If you were hoping to see a larger selection of new submissions, don’t be disappointed. In January, we’ll continue on with business as usual in the Winter 2012 issue. We’ve had a flood of submissions, so the selection process has been intense. Bottom line, we’ll have an incredible issue filled with powerful contributions. Hope you look forward to it as much as we do.

Thanks for reading.

    Jonathan Berzer’s extract was too short. “More” he shouts, please!
