Peggy Perdue has been called a “big idea” poet, but her work situates itself directly in the small miracles of the everyday.

Her first poem was published when she was 12—and has subsequently been destroyed. She was a 2017/18 Atheneum Fellow at the Attic Institute of Arts and Letters. Trained as a journalist, she has worked for Willamette Week, Portland Monthly, Times–Free Press, Bitch Media, and more. She is currently writing her first book.
