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.

Contributors: Oana Avasilichioaei, Morgan Chojnacki, Lindsay Diehl, Marilyn Dumont, Susan Andrew Grace, Sandra Huber, Adeena Karasick, Sarah Leavitt, Sylvio Legris, Marcie McCauley, Lori McNulty, Christine Moore, Sarah Murphy, Shauna Paull, Sharron Proulx-Turner, Seema Shah, Nathalie Stephens, Jennifer Still, Meaghan Strimas, Rita Wong, Ongana Yawnghwe.
