Reckoning - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
Note: work may be submitted in English, Spanish, French or Swedish.

The short version: creative writing and art about environmental justice.

The fiction we publish is mostly, but not exclusively, speculative. We appreciate surreal and experimental pieces as well as strong plotting, but prefer writing that doesn’t lean too far into pulp.
