Spring 2012


Letter from the Editor

You’ve been waiting a long time for this issue, as have we. It marks the culmination of several events, of several changes—much needed transformation. It may not look very different at first glance, but the behind the scenes operations have been dramatically altered, hence the delay in the publication of the March Issue. Spring brought us change; we offer it to you.

On a personal note, the work load to maintain The Citron Review got to be too much for me, and I decided to step down. In the process of finding a replacement, as you know by now, we found two amazing editors who have picked up a lot of the slack I  left. Their efforts (as well as those of our esteemed Managing Editor, Heather Luby) have helped us refine our vision of our publication, so much so that I changed my mind about leaving. I’ll be staying on with The Citron Review for the forseeable future, because of the hard work and dedication that Heather, Erica, Lee, Antonia and Trish are putting in! 

Here’s more good news: We have officially made the switch to Submittable! See our submissions guidelines for more information and a link to our new submissions manager.  As always, we will remain dedicated to the quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry you’ve come to expect from us. Thanks for your patience, and keep sending us your stunning work!

Good Writing,
Aaron Gansky

    Is anyone else having trouble with your site? When I click on submit I get a runtime error page with some gibberish instructions.
