2020 Year-End Appeal Letter

Dear Friends of Perugia Press,

What a tumultuous year it’s been! At Perugia Press, like elsewhere, we’re making adjustments to how we work while still bringing poetry books by women into the world. Regardless of those shifts, this has been a big year for Perugia Press. Here are some highlights:

The Covid-19 crisis combined with a renewed reckoning about racial injustices means that more than ever we need poets who can articulate the truth with concision and raw beauty. Please make a donation today, to support us in the valuable work of bringing new women poets into print. Recurring monthly donations are now possible through the safe and secure Donorbox on our website. For one-time gifts of $100 and over, or sustaining gifts of any size, we’ll send you a copy of Now in Color with a bookplate signed by the poet.

Our sturdy, tiny enterprise depends on your generosity. We appreciate every book you buy, every reading you attend, every dollar you donate.


Susan Kan, President of the Board & Jean Blakeman, Board member
