Praise


“I just opened the new issue of Persimmon Tree (have read some of the
pieces–they are gorgeous and heartbreaking as well) and saw that the
Write Well Awards are noted. I just want to thank you again and everyone
at Persimmon Tree for both publishing my story “A Bad Day….” and for
submitting it for the Write Well Awards. I have been so encouraged that
I’m working hard on editing the other stories and at getting the final
story written.”
— Joan (Leibovitz) Newburger, Spring 2018

I applaud all your efforts to produce such a quality publication.
Thanks again.”
