Persimmon Tree Journal: Fun topic

If you don't know about Persimmon Tree, it is an on-line journal that only publishes writing (poetry, fiction/non and art) by women over 60. Writers' Wings client Jenny Clover Hacker will have one of her humorous creative non-fiction stories published by them this year.

They run a column called Short Takes and solicit submissions periodically. From January 1-February 15  they are looking for writing that interprets the theme of Boiling Points.
Too often older women’s artistic work is ignored or disregarded, and only those few who are already established receive the attention they deserve. Yet many women are at the height of their creative abilities in their later decades and have a great deal to contribute. Persimmon Tree is committed to bringing this wealth of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art to a broader audience, for the benefit of all. - See more at: http://www.persimmontree.org/v2/about-us/#sthash.dwpuBxCG.dpuf
