What should you submit? The Citron Review accepts submission of Micro-Fiction, Flash Fiction, Poetry and Creative Non-Fiction. For word count specification, see guidelines below. Ultimately, we are looking for works that have that unmistakable magnetic pull. Stories that make us jump up from our seats or throw our head in our hands and cry, yes! Make us feel, make us think, be captivating, be moving, be infinite.
