Our Advertising Policy

Persimmon Tree accepts ads from women 60 and over for books, magazines, websites, art works, gallery showings, play readings and performances, concerts, recordings, textiles and weaving, greeting cards, jewelry, and anything else in the world of literature, the arts or crafts that you wish to share.

The advertising pages can be accessed from anywhere in the magazine by clicking on ArtsMart, which is at the top of every page. The order of ads in ArtsMart changes every time a reader opens their browser, so every ad will rise to the top of the page with some frequency. Every issue of Persimmon Tree is visited by over 10,000 readers. In addition to appearing in ArtsMart, ads are scattered throughout the editorial pages of the magazine, and are featured every few weeks in emails sent to Persimmon Tree’s mailing list of 8,000 readers, subscribers and friends.

Links to Amazon are affiliate links, meaning that although the price to the purchaser and your royalty from the publisher remain the same, Persimmon Tree receives a small commission on each purchase. Nevertheless, we will continue also to suggest to purchasers that they can buy your work from independent bookstores, and we will include in your ad any links, in addition to the link to Amazon, that you request.


If you wish us to format your ad, please provide up to 250 words of text; a main head and optional subheads, as well as one hyperlink to the website (e.g., point of sale, personal web site), and
a single image no larger than 130 x 190 pixels, in either JPG or GIF file format.

Display ads (provided as a single image in either JPG or GIF file format) must be no less that 580 pixels wide, and can be no more than 700 pixels in length.
