Poetry is currently closed for submissions until February 1st. Last year Shining Rock Poetry Anthology and Book Review interviewed managing editor @ericsteineger about how we make our poetry picks. Eric writes, "There are poems that are wonderfully accessible and reveal rich narratives. Poems that lessen the distance between the strangers who inhabit the planet and ourselves. But sometimes I read those poems, loving them, and feel I can continue without returning to those lines. Sometimes it is the odd bird in the forest I cannot escape; however hard I try to move on, I return, fascinated by its new pose on a tree -- its awkward, yet strangely affecting song. While it is difficult to describe the voice of a typical Citron poem, I can tell you some of our favorite poets: John Ashbery, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Terrance Hayes, Kate Hall, Rene Char, Richard Siken, Anne Carson, e.e. cummings, Sharon Olds, Lee Ann Roripaugh, and Brenda Shaughnessy." http://www.shiningrockpoetry.com/notes-on-editing-at-the-citron-review-by-eric-steineger #TheCitronReview #onlinejournal #briefliterature #celebratingtheshortform #cheersto10years #Citron10 #amreading
