Summer 2012

Letter from the Editor

After months of working as a Fiction Editor with The Citron Review, I have taken over the role of Managing Editor from Aaron Gansky. Over the last several months, TCR has seen many changes. New faces have joined the staff (Lee, Erica and Eric) and titles and roles and responsibilities have been tossed around. We moved our submissions over to Submittable and we’ve seen our number of submissions jump way into the hundreds per month. It has been busy, but it has been fruitful and it has been fun.

While putting together this issue, I couldn’t stop thinking about the word Citron and what it means to me and this publication. The Citron Review was chosen as a title because Aaron Gansky, Antonia Crane, Trish Falin and Judy Sunderland all received their MFAs as members of the same graduating class, dubbed by Antioch University Los Angeles as, “The Citrons.”  But I did some research and discovered that citron fruit has a thick white rind, which adheres to the inside segments, and cannot be separated from them easily. I like the image this conjures for me.

We are all Citrons—not just the editors here, but every writer whose work appears on our “pages.” We are bound together by our passion for the written word. A passion that is so essential to our very beings, so ingrained inside of us, that we cannot be separated from it. I’m honored to be a part of this incredible Citron staff and to have a hand in publishing the brilliant writers of this issue!

Rock on Citrons~
Heather Luby
Managing Editor

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
