Perkins Press was a zine published in Massachusetts, U.S.A. during the 1990s.

William Georgiades was the editor of Perkins Press during its brief run from 1990 to 1994. It was named after its location: Perkins Ave. in Northampton, Massachusetts. The zine was printed on tabloid newsprint.

What was probably the final issue of Perkins Press, issue 13 (Fall '94), was reviewed by R. Seth Friedman in Factsheet Five #54 and described as "An enjoyable personal newspaper, occasionally published by Will Georgiades. The erratic publishing schedule leads to a better collection of writing because the contributors are allowed to take their time polishing their work." (Factsheet Five, #54, January 1995, R. Seth Friedman, 'Medley', p. 47; reviews also appeared in Factsheet Five issues #42 and #43).

A short story titled "At the Village Hall" by screenwriter William Monahan appeared in vol. 2, no. 4 (Late-summer issue 1991) and later garnered a special mention in the 1998 Pushcart Prize volume.
