Submit all pieces as Word attachments.  Within the body of the e-mail, please indicate the best way we may reach you, as well as if there is a particular professor who was instrumental in the creation of the submission and/or you would like to work with during the revising period.  You may submit multiple pieces, but please submit each piece in its own e-mail.
