Publisher’s description: Perugia Press publishes one collection of poetry each year, by a woman at the beginning of her publishing career. Our mission is to produce beautiful books that interest long-time readers of poetry and welcome those new to poetry. We also aim to celebrate and promote poetry whenever we can.

Kettle Bottom (Fisher, 2004) was selected by ABA as a top ten poetry book in 2005. Lamb (Lindsay, 2006) was runner-up for the James Laughlin Award.
