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).

Sally Jane Herrin, come from yonder—points both south and east—is Nebraskan by chance then by choice, a writer, educator and advocate for progressive agriculture, trade and energy policy and for social, economic and environmental justice. She was privileged to serve five great Nebraska populist institutions from 1976 to 2008—UNL literary magazine “Prairie Schooner,” the Nebraska Arts Council, the mighty Nebraskan Farmers Union, Nebraskans for Peace and Southeast Community College-Milford Campus. Prairie Fire makes it six.
