“Let me first apologize for the long delay in sending this response.
We have decided to not use outside press release editing services, after all.
This decision has nothing to do with the quality or timeliness of your work.
We sent out a call for eLance editors at a time when our staff was undergoing a major change, and we believe it would be helpful to get one or more 'outside' editors to a point where we trusted them to perform the editing functions that we do in house. That seemed a reasonable proposition at the time.
Since then, we have decided that our efforts are better spent doing different tasks in-house, and that our newswire partner is willing and able to perform the great bulk of the editing tasks as part of their service to us.
Because of that change, our in-house staff is no longer performing the editing tasks at all. So this rather obviously eliminates the need for freelance editing services.
Thanks for your interest in our job, and best wishes for the future.
