Fall 2017

Letter from the Editor

 

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
Maya Angelou

 

October is here, and with it the 2017 Fall Issue. I am also pleased to share our 2017 nominations for Best of the Net in the areas of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Congratulations to the nominees.

In Citron’s 10th summer issue on this longest day in the sun we bring you stories of vulnerability and meaning. We also offer something new. As part of our 10th anniversary we have created Zest, a place for our editors to share essays, reviews, and other posts in between our four annual issues. Zest’s first feature is a review written by Managing Editor and Senior Poetry Editor @ericsteineger. You can find his review of @jerzypoet's debut chapbook, Demolition in the Tropics as the last item in our summer issue and on Zest’s page. It’s been an amazing ten years of stories. In September we will publish the fall issue as well as a look back at 10 years of The Citron Review. To our readers and contributors, thank you for being a part of our story. #CitronSix #CitronStories #Summer2019 #SummerIssue #TheCitronReview #cheersto10years #amreading #summersolstice #summerreading
