Since 1997, Perugia Press has published first and second books of poetry by women. We produce one book a year, the winner of the Perugia Press Prize. Our goal is to help right gender inequity in publishing by launching women’s voices into the world, one excellent book at a time. Please consider purchasing directly from our bookshop.
Perugia Press donates 5% of our book sales at year-end to organizations that support the lives and work of BIWOC (Black, Indigenous, and women of color). In 2020-2021, buying our books supports us and these selected organizations: The Audre Lorde Project, the National Black Women’s Justice Institute, and the Hurston/Wright Foundation.
