4. Keep an eye on your email or the document itself for comments from the reviewers. When you receive a comment, please respond to the comment and/or revise the essay in light of your discussion with your reviewer(s).

(It will disappear, but will still be accessible in the document history if you want to revisit it later.) Make sure all revisions are complete by July 22.
Final acceptance/rejection notifications will come via email, hopefully within a week. Our goal is to publish at least the first format of the ebook by August, with other freely accessible formats to follow as quickly as possible.
