Submit to the Hangman’s Lime

Calling all poets: The Hangman’s Lime is looking for submissions!

Co-editor Robecca Coven ’13 writes: “The Hangman’s Lime is Wesleyan’s oldest all-poetry magazine. Our name comes from the Dylan Thomas poem ‘The force that through the green fuse drives the flower.’ Each year we select a small number of works from a great many undergraduate submissions to publish in an issue put out in the spring. At Hangman’s Lime we believe in the value of a community of poets. This community is as multifaceted as the word will allow, and those boundaries are stretched and redefined with every poem produced. Our mission is that the Lime be an outlet for the voices of undergrad poets at Wesleyan and through our efforts encourage open discussion about poetry.”

We welcome all types of poetry. Submissions are due by December 1 and can be sent to
