Reckoning 1

“Exactly the kind of creative writing journal we need right now. [Reckoning] celebrates diversity–of nature, of human nature–while never shying away from the stark challenges of environmental justice. These stories, essays and poems highlight and negotiate the ecology of landscapes in decline and the many spaces humans occupy in a rapidly changing world. Yet they never once lose hope.” – Emmi Itäranta, author of A Memory of Water

“A bold new journal of speculation and resistance, alive with possibility yet achingly aware of the here and now.” – Sofia Samatar, author of Tinder

“I wholeheartedly recommend Reckoning. It is a refreshing breath of fresh air, full of life and language from around this one world that we are all together sharing. There is darkness and hope and work. It is a solid foundation, a grand beginning, and I cannot wait to see what comes next.” – Gavin J. Grant

Stylistically, culturally and ethnically diverse fiction, essays, poetry and art on the theme of environmental justice.
