If your submission has been sent, it is no longer editable and Submittable is not permitted to open or edit your submission contents.

However, you can request that the submission be opened for editing by the organization that you submitted to. You can usually find a contact email or phone number on the organization's website. Please note that if the review process has already started, the organization may decline your request.

To Request Editing:

  • The organization may allow you to request an edit within your Submittable account. Go to your submissions list and locate your submission. Click its title or number to open. If the organization allows edit requests, you will see an Edit link in the right corner of the details. Click the Edit link to submit your request.

  • You may also be able to send a message to the organization. Go to your submissions list and click on the name of your submission. Then, click the Messages tab. If the organization allows submitters to send messages, there will be a New Message button available. Click the New Message button to send a message the organization.

  • You can withdraw your submission and resubmit. Read our help article for more information about withdrawing. Withdrawing does not provide an automatic refund of your submission fee. A refund must be requested by the organization.

    If the organization approves your request, you will receive an email letting you know your submission was opened for editing. Click the submission title in your account to open the details, then the purple Edit button under the Content or Forms tab, and make your edits. Be sure to resubmit after you're done.
