Editor’s Note


Welcome to the first is­sue of Prairie Fire’s for­ti­eth year!

This is­sue’s spe­cial fea­ture is Ev­ery­day Love. A call for sub­mis­sions to Ev­ery­day Love ran for five weeks and re­sulted in 400 sub­mis­sions, mak­ing it our most pop­u­lar call ever! So much good work was sub­mit­ted that our ed­i­tors had a tough time mak­ing the fi­nal se­lec­tion. I hope you en­joy read­ing their choices as much as I did.

This sum­mer, Prairie Fire will mark its 40th birth­day! With the help of The Win­nipeg Foun­da­tion, we’ll take a look back at the early days of PF (when it was Writ­ers News Man­i­toba), and ex­plore the present by pub­lish­ing Win­nipeg-based writ­ers who have never ap­peared in PF be­fore! As well, we will fea­ture the win­ners of the Prairie Fire/ McNally Robin­son Book­sellers 2017 writ­ing con­tests. Please join us for this cel­e­bra­tory is­sue!

Want more info on our con­tests, con­test win­ners, our up­com­ing fundraiser (with read­ings by Jen­nifer Still and Armin Wiebe who are fea­tured in this is­sue) or any­thing else PF re­lated? Check out our web­site: prairiefire.ca
