Peirene Press is proud to support the Maya Centre & Counterpoints Arts.


'A good book should change the world for the better beyond the last page.'  Meike Ziervogel


Since 2012 Peirene Press donates 50p from the sale of each book to the Maya Centre.

The Maya Centre provides free psychodynamic counselling and group psychotherapy for women on low and no incomes in London. The counselling is offered in many different languages, including Arabic, Turkish and Portuguese. The centre also undertakes educational work on women's mental health issues.

By buying our books you help the Maya Centre to contiune their pioneering services.


From 2016 we will donate 50p from the sale of each book to Counterpoints Arts. 

Counterpoints Arts is a charity that promotes the creative arts by and about refugees and migrants in the UK.

‘We are living in a time of human displacement. We need bold and imaginative interventions to help us make sense of migration. And who better to do this than artists who are engaging with this issue.’ Almir Koldzic and Áine O’Brien, Directors, Counterpoints Arts

By buying our 2016 series you are helping Counterpoints Arts enhance the cultural integration of refugees – a mission which will surely change our society for the better.
