Time again for a reminder to the short story writers and poets in our midst: Your submissions are welcomed for the annual U.S. 1 Summer Fiction issue. While the issue is being published on Wednesday, July 24, we need your contributions by Friday, June 14. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, we remind you that this is not a contest. But we do need time to read and edit the submissions, to see how or if they fit in with other submissions, and then to make as much room as we can to print as many as possible.
We also remind contributors that telling us a little about yourself is helpful. This issue is primarily for people who work or live in the U.S. 1 circulation area. Given the dearth of outlets for fiction and poetry, we are not surprised at the number of submissions from far-away writers. But we do strive to keep this in our “community.” Please see the notice on page 7 of this issue for more information.

McCarter Theater’s annual gala benefit on Saturday, May 18, featured a smashing performance by the Midtown Men that had the whole theater dancing in the aisles (literally!). McCarter is grateful for the support offered by its donors and by the Princeton community.
The evening was great fun, and it was a pleasure to see so many people enjoying themselves while supporting this great institution. Thank you to our wonderful co-chairs, Judy Scheide and Tamera Matteo, and the great team at Joss and Jules Catering for all they did to create a magical event for us. Our wonderful volunteers on the Gala Committee did an amazing job — their dedication and vision created a truly memorable evening.
We would like thank our corporate supporters for their stalwart support of the theater and of this event. We deeply appreciate their support. The gold level corporate sponsors, Cure Auto Insurance and The Gould Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, have been supporting the work of the theater for several years and we are proud that they continue to support our gala in this way.
In addition, we would like to say thank you to our amazing team at McCarter — from our production crew to our team of interns. The entire staff had a role in creating this spectacular event and did so with great professionalism and grace.
Like so many non-profits in our region, McCarter Theater depends on private donations to help us fulfill our mission. Through this support, we are able to offer truly world-class entertainment in Princeton at very affordable prices. We are also able to offer educational and outreach programs to students and schools in Princeton, New Brunswick, Trenton, and many other school districts in our area.
