Letter from the Editor
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
– Albert Camus
It’s come the time of year where some of us feel like we wish we could hibernate. For some, winter has come early, and in some places, it has come harshly and unfairly.
Over the past days, late at night, and in between the moments of life, I got to live here in these pages of The Citron Review. While getting each line of our writers’ work into place, I have felt both quietly honored to be part of the process of bringing these pieces of art into the world, and drunk on this beautiful writing that has been part of my feast this week.
I’m grateful for my role at The Citron Review, and to know that in a few months, our managing editor will send me an email that says SPRING. Until then, I’m excited to share this issue with you. May you too find something here that soothes your soul – or perhaps takes you someplace else, if even for a moment.
