A Journal for Writers of a Certain Age

Old age may be “no place for sissies,” as Bette Davis said, but it’s a great place for writers. It’s a place where you can shed old roles, try out new ones, express creative urges – in short, write what you want to write. Some people advise you to age gracefully; we advocate aging outrageously!

Our on-line journal here at Writing Into the Sunset is dedicated to your writing life. We publish erratically but at least twice a year. We publish prose and poetry by writers of a certain age, which we perhaps arbitrarily define as 50 and older. Submissions are now open for our winter 2016 issue. See details at Submit.

The  site offers other resources as well: news of events of interest to writers, links to other sites, workshop opportunities, recommended reading, and tips and prompts for inspiration, if needed.
