Spring 2014

Letter from the Editor

I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.
– Pablo Neruda

For so many of us winter has been a harsh barrage of cold, relentless stinging winds and the endless isolation of white. For others, it may have been warm and light filled, but below the surface the world has been left parched and desperate. Spring offers us the promise of liberation. The cold will be shrugged off and all that has been lying dormant will awaken and rise up.

The Spring 2014 Issue of The Citron Review showcases a careful mix of work by writers ready to rise up, to burst forth and crack you open. This issue embraces the quiet violence of the changing season, the messiness of rebirth, and the truth that no matter how hard the cold earth has packed itself away during winter, what we bury deep always finds its way to the top.

May the words blossom and brutalize your heart.
