Northfield Poet Laureate: Prairie Creek Community School Poem

The Northfield Poet Laureate is sponsored by the City of Northfield and funded by the Northfield Public Library and the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC), in partnership with the Northfield Arts and Culture Commission.

In January 2018, the Northfield Poet Laureate worked with the students at Prairie Creek Community School to create a school poem. The poem was subsequently engraved on wood for display at the school, and set to music by St. Olaf College music students as part of the opera How Prairie Creek Came to Be, created in collaboration with Prairie Creek Community School students in January 2020.
