After you upload your story, you should land on an upload success page in addition to receiving an immediate email stating that we have received your submission.  If you do NOT receive an immediate confirmation e-mail and/or land on the upload success page, your submission may not have gone through and we suggest uploading again.  Please check your junk mail folder for the confirmation email as well.  Also, if you find a typo after submitting and would like to submit a revised version, you may resubmit as many times as you like until the deadline.  We take the latest upload before the deadline for judging.
