I am thrilled to share (late as usual) that three poems were published in Feminine Collective in winter 2018. Here is my favorite: A Trouble At Men
I am happy to announce that I have a new poem live on Rose Quartz Magazine. Click here to read it!
It’s here! My second poetry chapbook, entitled The Salt and the Song, is now available through Headmistress Press. It includes a 2019 Pushcart Prize nominated poem.
“There is no better witness to the divine than a woman. Virginia Petrucci is a collector of beautiful objects, a medium for the unknown & the known. The form delivers a captivating dismemberment of self, makes itself precious in chaos like a piece of polished sea glass–it is poetry that revels in burning at both ends.”

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been included as a semi-finalist in the 2018 Charlotte Mew Chapbook competition and that my poetry chapbook, The Salt and the Song, will be published through Headmistress Press! I’m honored to be included alongside so many outstanding women writers.
Apparently a failure in the self-promotion department, I’ve neglected to make a proper post announcing the availability of my new poetry chapbook, Recipes and How-To’s! Released in November 2017 through Red Flag Poetry, this collection of experimental poetry and abstract artwork may be purchased directly through the publisher: https://www.redflagpoetry.com/store/p17/Recipes_and_How-To’s_-_Virginia_Petrucci.html
Another poem of mine, “What The Bees Know”, is featured in issue 3 of The Ginger Collect. Have a read, along with other wonderful stories and poems!
You have an odd way of requiring “sir”.
Respect ground out of hurt, your status unearned.
A tremble of doubt, a flame to snuff out
a light like a feather, she’s hushed—all the better.
She’ll beg and she’ll bruise
The chamber you use
to hide all your faults
Your money: her vault.
