Spring 2019

Letter from the Editor

 

always
it’s
Spring)and everyone’s
in love and flowers pick themselves
– e.e. cummings, “Who knows if the moon’s”

 

Spring is finally here, and with it Citron enters its tenth year committed to celebrating the short form. Although the editors have just finished this issue, they are already busy reading the archives as they make their selections for the fall Tenth Anniversary Issue. I hope you visit our past issues as well.

In January we started spring cleaning the archives, making changes that maintain the history of Citron while also improving the visual experience. Along the way we have connected with some of Citron’s former contributors to see where these small works and their authors have traveled since we last saw them.

To our contributors, thank you for believing in our journal from the very start. We are also looking to update our records with your contact information and accomplishments, so please send us an email so we can share your good news as we feature writers and works from our past issues.

To all of our readers, thank you for your making the time and space in your life to share ten years of stories with us. We look forward to the next ten years and more with you.

On behalf of The Citron Review, we hope you enjoy the Spring 2019 issue.

 

Warmly,
Angela M. Brommel
