The News Writer's Guild editorial review process follows a Three-Tier review process.
Tier 1 - All press release submissions are reviewed by an editor who performs the initial read and review. This is to ensure that all content guidelines and editorial standards are met.
Tier 2 - Should the release be of more technical nature or require further review a Staff Editor then forwards the press release submission to a Senior Editor who then continues reviewing the varying technical and/or factual matters of the submitted content.
Tier 3 - For certain releases, our editorial team may require additional verification for releases involving but not limited to: celebrity endorsements, cryptocurrency, partnerships, deals, venture capital and any other highly sensitive material. Should additional verification/authorization forms be required they can be downloaded here or provided by our staff (email@example.com).
Editorial review is typically 2-4 hours during business hours depending on volume in our Editorial Queue. Should there be any flagged items or revisions necessary, this may add time to the approval. Notifications will be sent via email. (Please be sure to whitelist firstname.lastname@example.org).
Although there is a review process, clients are responsible for making sure all content is accurate, factual and checked for grammar and spelling. If any revisions are are necessary after submission, a re-processing fee may apply.
For any changes to a release after approval or publishing, please contact our Editorial team for assistance. For immediate assistance, please call 800-490-9642
After these steps have concluded the press release submission proceeds and if no other verification is needed, the release continues to live publication.
