Prairie Fire is a regional monthly 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.
Rather than being a chronicle of daily events, Prairie Fire seeks to inspire thoughts that cause daily events to make more sense in the context of an improving society.
Our contributing writers and artists are experts in their fields, covering public policy, the environment, social issues, arts and humanities. And our writers will stand behind their words; no ghostwriting is allowed. Our first issues will include contributions from former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey; Father Don Hanway, retired rector of St. Mark’s on the Campus Episcopal Church; former U.S. Representative John Cavanaugh; former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm; former Admiral Jim Partington; Nebraska Lieutenant Governor Rick Sheehy; and noted photographer Joel Sartore.
Although Prairie Fire will initially be published monthly, we hope wide acceptance and enthusiasm will allow us to publish with increased frequency and extend our distribution beyond Nebraska into neighboring states of the Great Plains.
I encourage you to join us on this endeavor through your advertising support, your writing and your feedback. Any and all of it will be greatly appreciated.
