Sending poems to The Hangman’s Lime, Wesleyan’s oldest and zestiest poetry publication, entails many benefits: personal fulfillment, maybe conquering a fear of getting work out there, the possibility of becoming a literary superstar, a life full of lime trees, and all our beautiful limes, endless possibilities. It will make us very happy.
