Poet. Observer.

Peggy Perdue lives in her own world where she spends as much time as possible thinking, imagines everything is waaaayyy easier than we’re making it, and doesn’t care if everyone thinks her ideas are naive. In 2017/18, she was an Atheneum Fellow in poetry at the Attic Institute of Arts and Letters in Portland. She is currently working on her first book.

Trained as a journalist, Peggy has worked for Willamette Week, Portland Monthly, Bitch Media, Portland Tribune, Chattanooga Times–Free Press, and more. She has a degree in English-Journalism and is working on a profile series, which you can learn about here.


I’m a full-time mom and writer, which means I require lots of coffee. (Okay, well, the maximum allowed.) It’s a small break in my day that opens time to think and write. Pitch in for a cup, and I’ll send you what I write that day.

Thank you. I’ll also send you an update when my book comes out.

It may take time, but I will get back with you. No automation. No email list. Just an honest response and, I hope, the start of a conversation.
