We Need a Reckoning is a deeply powerful collection of poetry, essays and memoir by women and non-binary people of color in the Tacoma, Washington area. Organized into five parts – wind, soil, water, sky, and breath – and featuring creative writing by thirty-one contributors, the collection is simultaneously a rallying cry for the land and people we build our homes in; a spell for strength and safe passage through tribulation; and a celebration of the power and brilliance of women. This anthology was partially funded by the Tacoma Arts Commission.
