Fall 2013

Letter from the Editor

 

As I was reviewing poetry acceptances for the Fall 2013 Issue, I started to notice a trend: Many of these poems involve a winter landscape, a winter frame of mind. Was that a problem? Should I rethink the selections? After some deliberation, the answer became a resounding no.

Because that’s not what The Citron Review is about. We want, always, the best work we can find — whatever that means. And that goes for poetry, creative nonfiction, flash, art, and the hybridization of other genres. I am fortunate to work with other editors who feel the same way and who seek out like voices, voices that are as happy drinking dark beer in June as they are wearing a dress or a seersucker suit to a pig pickin’. So let’s delight in the status that we are constantly in flux and constantly in search of exciting.

Happy reading.

 

Sincerely,
Eric Steineger
Senior Poetry Editor
The Citron Review

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/
