Perugia Press
Northampton, MA
Perugia Press publishes the best new women poets in the country. Located in Northampton, MA, but with a far-reaching scope, Perugia gets more than 500 submissions to our annual manuscript contest. Winning poets are aged 28 to 80, come from California to the tip of Cape Cod, and write poetry that is lively, powerful, diverse, and focused. What makes Perugia Press unique is our singular focus, our small and sturdy operation, our confidence that excellence comes this way: one book at a time. Perugia Press books interest long-time readers and welcome those new to poetry. Susan Kan is founder and director. Prior to starting the press, Susan earned her MFA in creative writing from the Warren Wilson College Program for Writers. She also offers freelance poetry manuscript reviews.
