* PERUGIA PRESS WEBSITE: Our newly designed website includes an improved bookshop experience, new ways to support the press, a blog, and free classroom resources for many of our books. Check it out!
* FACEBOOK & TWITTER: Even if you tend to visit us on Facebook and Twitter, please take a moment to check and see if you have liked our Facebook page and are following us on Twitter - we appreciate that support!
* INSTAGRAM: We've joined Instagram and are posting a few times a week there. If you're on Instagram, please follow us there @perugiapress!
* BLOG: We'll be posting twice a month on the Perugia Press blog. You can find these posts in the news tab on our website, where there is also an archive of these e-newsletters. Starting in September, we'll be using our platform to feature a monthly spotlight on poems by BIWOC poets (which we'll also include in this e-newsletter for subscribers to read). This was a suggestion from subscriber Dorina Pena from Philly, PA - thank you, Dorina! The poems we'll highlight will be connected to Perugia's mission to promote emerging poets, so they will either be early work by established BIWOC poets or work by those who have yet to publish more than one book. We'd love to hear from our subscribers with suggestions for poems & poets to feature, or with other ideas for antiracist actions we could take.
Thanks for being part of our community!
