Winter 2016

Letter from the Editor

Kindness is like snow — it beautifies everything it covers.
— Kahlil Gibran

 

Winter is here, and so is our final issue of 2016.

This was a great year at Citron. We started with the Queer Issue (Spring 2016) with guest editors, Jenny Factor, Seth Fischer, Shannon Barber, and Milcah Orbacedo. In June we published an expanded issue, Citron Six (Summer 2016), and in the fall we added notes on the selections from the editors in each genre.

This winter we welcome Nicholas Olson (Assistant Editor/Fiction Editor) and Zach Jacobs (Creative Nonfiction Editor) to our team. Nick also edits at Cease, Cows and reviews for The Review Review. He was a finalist for Glimmer Train’s 2016 Very Short Fiction Award and has been published in SmokeLong Quarterly, Hobart, Literary Orphans, decomP, and in other great journals. Zach’s writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Sport Literate, The Examined Life Journal, and Fine Lines. He is currently working on a collection of essays and an archaeological memoir.

We are looking forward to the new year. In February we will open for submissions in poetry, flash fiction, micro-fiction, creative nonfiction, and more. Look for updated guidelines for submitting to The Citron Review at that time.

On behalf of the editors at The Citron Review, this winter we wish you kindness, beauty, and a happy new year.

Warmly,
Angela M. Brommel
Editor-in-Chief
The Citron Review

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
