Can I make changes to my essay after I submit it?

The work you submit for consideration should be the best possible version of your essay. We understand that mistakes happen, however, so in the event that you submitted the wrong file, we do allow editing of submitted essays within a limited set of parameters–usually within two weeks of the original submission date or up until a contest deadline. After the essay has been assigned to a reader, changing files can cause a lot of confusion and may result in our not giving your work our best attention.
