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.
