Reckoning



Reckoning: an imperfect means of navigation by which one determines where they’re going using only where they’ve been.

Reckoning: a settling of scores; justice.

Environmental justice: the notion that the people (and other living things) saddled with the consequences of humanity’s poor environmental choices and the imperative to remedy those choices are not the ones responsible for them.

Reckoning: a nonprofit, annual journal of creative writing on environmental justice.

The short version: fiction preferably at least a tiny bit speculative, nonfiction preferably more creative than journalistic, poetry your guess is as good as mine. But the heart of what I want is your searingly personal, visceral, idiosyncratic understanding of the world and the people in it as it has been, as it is, as it will be, as it could be, as a consequence of human-caused climate change.
