Paulette Perhach

Paulette Perhach’s writing has been published in the New York Times, ELLE, Slate, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and Vice. She’s worked for Health and Coastal Living magazines, as well as various newspapers. Hugo House, a nationally recognized writing center in Seattle, awarded her the Made at Hugo House fellowship in 2013. She was nominated for the 2016 BlogHer Voices of the Year award for her essay, “Fuck Off Fund,” which is anthologized in Freshman Year of Life from Flatiron Books.

During her time as a reporter, the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors awarded her First Place for Features Writing in 2007, when judges said, “If literary is putting the right word in the right place, Perhach is a stylist. Perhach is a poet.” In 2008 she launched Drift, an arts and culture monthly, which won Best New Magazine from the Florida Magazine Association that year. She then served in Peace Corps in Paraguay.

In 2015 she created the Writer’s Welcome Kit, an online course for writers that includes a 55,000-word workbook. Hugo House licenses and sells the course. Her book, which sprang from the course, was published in August 2018 by Sasquatch Books, part of the Penguin Random House publishing family. Welcome to the Writer's Life was selected as one of Poets & Writers' Best Books for Writers.

She blogs about money at fuckofffund.com and keeps a casual podcast called Can We Talk About Money?

She's now a coach for writers, helping them figure out how to make a life and identity out of being a writer while making the money work (as she figures it out herself.) She's also a speaker on topics of creativity, writing, and business.

Perhach holds a magazine journalism degree from the University of Florida, as well as three-fourths of an MFA in Fiction from Pacific University, which got interrupted by the success of the Fuck Off Fund essay. She lives in Seattle, where she writes and tries to keep her bank account positive while still living a life that she loves.
