Poem Just Accepted for Summer 2013 Issue of Persimmon Tree

I’m delighted to announce that one of the poems I wrote at Peter Murphy’s annual Poetry and Prose Getaway this past January, “After and Because”,  has just today been accepted for the Summer 2013 issue of Persimmon Tree,  a very well respected journal of writing by women over 60.

They do not ordinarily accept poetry submissions. However, two times a year they hold contests and publish the winning poems submitted by poets who live in a specific geographical region.


I submitted in response to a call for poets living in ten Northeast states (ME, VT, NH, CT, MA, RI, NY, PA, NJ, DE), so the contest was very competitive. I’m thrilled!! I will be sure to let you know when the issue is up and running.
