@elizabeth_stief , are you wanting to send this paper directly to your Instructor through the Canvas Inbox - How do I attach a file to a message as a student? Or, are you trying to post something to a discussion - How do I reply to a discussion as a student? & https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10687-4212189819
Hope this helps! Kona
Hi @elizabeth_stief - the suggestions made i the reply above are right on point. I just wanted to add in my one words that there should be something under the "assignment" from your professor asking for a submission of your paper. You can click on that and follow the steps to submit. Good luck.
