Submit a Project

Once you become a member, you will be given author privileges on the site.  When you complete a project, you must start a new post and type up your writing and/or attach your picture to the post.  Remember not to publish the post.  Instead, you should save it as a draft. Once it is edited and graded, it will be published and featured on the site.  You can continue on to your next projects.

It's very simple to submit a project onto the site.  Follow these directions to learn how.
