Summer 2012

1

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
