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) folx. In 2022-2023, buying our books supports us as well as these three selected organizations: Cave Canem, Split This Rock, and Voices from Inside.
Commemorating Perugia’s twentieth anniversary and the move forward into its third decade, this chapbook features a poem from each of the press’s first twenty books. Brilliance, Spilling celebrates the depth and breadth of Perugia Press’s catalog.
