Dish submission deadline approached this semester, I found myself
nibbling my nails anxiously while the clock ticked toward midnight. The
summer issue of Haute Dish has traditionally been a rather slow one,
with so many students preparing for graduation and enjoying the
beautiful spring weather. What if all my class visits, email blasts,
and incessant pestering had been in vain? Would I lose my street cred
as Managing Editor? Would I be forced to eat my stale vending machine
Rold Golds and watery coffee in the Founders Hall basement bathroom to
avoid the ridiculing laughter of my peers? Most importantly, would I
ever again strike fear into the hearts of Administration with open mic
flyers teeming with sexual innuendo?!
our faculty advisor, emailed me the afternoon of the deadline: "Do you
think we'll get 100 submissions?" Optimistically - and I generally do
not qualify as an optimist - I replied, "I bet we'll get 104.
pleasure to announce that we not only hit 104 submissions - we bypassed
it in leaps and bounds. The total number of submissions of prose,
poetry and art we received for this issue was 134. In fact, it's the
second highest number of submissions we've received since the launch of
Haute Dish in 2005! WOW!
