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).

Dr. Roger Cognard retired from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2008 after teaching for 37 years in the English Department. He served as dramaturg for many of the Shakespeare productions at Wesleyan and still frequents shows and other events around campus.
