Hangman’s Lime wants your poems

As you begin to pack away those books, those clothes, do not pack away your poems—oh no, not yet! Not before you have submitted to The Hangman’s Lime!

To do so, send 3-5 poems to hangmans_lime@yahoo by Dec. 17.

    Anon 9:56, 3 to 5 poems gives us a selection of your work. If you only give us one poem it might not get published because of logistical reasons. For example, since we cant publish a whole magazine full of poems that use, let’s say, bread as a metaphor, and still publish an diverse magazine, if your one poem is about bread, it might not get published even if you are a wonderful poet. So, submitting more than one poem gives us more of a chance to put your work in the magazine. That being said, since the magazine is small, we can’t publish tons of work by one person, so we cap the submission limit at 5.Of course, if you have only one or two poems to submit, you should send them to us despite these guidelines. Similarly, if you have six poems you think we must see, that’s ok, too.We look forward to reading your work!-Kate, The Hangman’s Lime
