Fall 2016

Letter from the Editor

The fall issue of Citron includes a letter from one of the editors before each genre as a regular feature in this and future issues. In April, the guest editors of The Queer Issue included notes about the selections within each genre. We loved how this created a new space for the editors, the writers, and the readers to engage with the work.

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/
