Persimmon Tree accepts ads related to literature and the arts, including publications, performances, openings, workshops, groups, and so on. It is, basically, our equivalent of a working writers and artists Personals section.

All ads appear together on our Arts Mart page. The page can be accessed from anywhere in the magazine.


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.

2x placement (6 months online) $160
