This anthology features selections from twenty-one works-in-progress by emerging to established writers of poetry, non-fiction, and lyric prose. Portfolio Milieu represents the most thoughtful, innovative and current writing from women writers across the country. Intensely textured, edgy, and often disturbing in both content and form, the writing confounds identification of genre, pushing the margins of possibility. Although commonalities of theme affirm there are issues particular to lives lived as women, many pieces tackle uncommon themes, unusual perspectives.
