Submit a draft at any level of completeness to email@example.com. Include the instructor, course, and as much detail about the assignment—such as due date and required length—as possible. Attaching a copy of the assignment prompt is very helpful. It is also OK to just email in a question about an assignment.
Submissions will be reviewed and responded to with advice about the current state of the assignment and directions to work moving forwards within 48 business hours.
