As a niche micro-publisher, The Neo Perennial Press publishes mythology inspired works: old texts, works poetically renewed, adapted or recreated and new, living myths.
The Neo Perennial Press also runs events under the banner of Heroines: presenting women writers who reclaim women’s histories, or creatively imagine their futures.
