Puma Perl


Puma Perl is a widely published poet and writer. She is the author of two chapbooks, the award-winning Belinda and Her Friends and the recently published Ruby True, and two full-length collections, knuckle tattoos and the recently published Retrograde (great weather for MEDIA press). She was the co-creator, co-producer, and main curator of DDAY Productions, which mounted shows in various NYC venues. Her current venture is Puma Perl’s Pandemonium, which launched at the Bowery Electric in 2012 and brings poetry together with rock and roll. She performs regularly with a number of excellent musicians and continues to curate shows. She is the photographic editor of the upcoming anthology about NYC performance poets, Slices of the Apple. Her photographs of artists, poets, and musicians are frequently used for album covers, fliers, and head shots, and have been published in literary journals and newspapers. Puma is currently working on a book of short stories starring Ruby True, the central character of her last book of poems, and on a new full-length poetry collection, to be published by Punk Hostage Press. She is also a journalist who writes for The Villager/Chelsea Now and is a monthly contributor to Steel Notes Magazine.
