About Us


Prairie Fire Newspaper went on hiatus after the publication of the September 2015 issue. It may return one of these days but until then we will continue to host all of our archived content for your reading pleasure. Many of the articles have held up well over the years. Please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts, or an interest in helping return Prairie Fire to production. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched (touches).

Prairie Fire is a monthly regional journal of public policy and the arts. We aspire to become the progressive voice of the Great Plains by providing engaging, thoughtful and bipartisan discourse on political matters, as well as compelling analyses and critiques of the arts and humanities. The newspaper is distributed by direct mail to selected recipients and all subscribers, and it is available for free pick-up at various locations in Nebraska. Local distribution is completed by the fifth of the month and regional distribution by the 10th.
