The Prairie Review is a laboratory for reading, writing, and publishing the works of grassroots poets and writers.  In order to increase the possibility for authentic and focused reception of the featured material, each edition of The Prairie Review showcases only a handful of writers along with a single visual artist. 


The Prairie Review is published four times a year in February, May, August and November. We engage with:


          flash fiction

          experimental writing



          art criticism

          drawings and paintings

          photography and collage


The majority of our contributors are friends and members of the Poetry Meetup in Chicago, a community of readers and writers which meets weekly to recite, discuss, and appreciate verse.
