Perugia Press News!
Later this year I will be taking on the role of editor/director of Perugia Press, a small nonprofit press founded in 1997 by the incomparable Susan Kan. Perugia is a feminist venture, publishing one book of poetry a year by a woman at the beginning of her publishing career. The manuscript is chosen from the entries to our nationwide annual contest. After working with the press for six years as a board member, manuscript reader, and finalist judge, I’m honored to continue our mission of bringing the work of the best new women poets to light. Check out Perugia’s website and Facebook page for info on the history of the press, our authors and their books, our contest guidelines, and news of upcoming events (such as a slate of 20th anniversary celebrations to be held November 10-15, 2016).
