Michael J. DeLuca publisher of Reckoning on Natural Alternatives

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.

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.
