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. 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 and 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 links to Amazon and, that you request.


Formatting your ad for Persimmon Tree is easy. We’ll do it all for you. Just send us the text you’d like to have in the ad (we suggest that you keep it to 250 words or less) and a photo of the book cover or whatever other picture you’d like in the ad, and our web designer will do the rest. We’ll send you a mockup of your ad for your approval before it appears in Persimmon Tree.
