The summer issue of Prairie Fire arrived the other day. In its pages, you’ll find the contest winners: the compressed, leaping “Rhubarb” by Lauren Carter; the tightly observed “Green Shoes” by Janice McCachen; and my own odd “This Much, I Know." 

Also in the pages: Michelle Kaeser’s "Upside Down on Friday Nights” which, all on its own, is worth the cover price of this journal.

And here is the cover!
