An open letter has been published by a group of freelancers for the suspended OpenFile.
"As freelancers who put many hours of work into OpenFile’s growth over the past few years, we were all disappointed to hear in late September that it would cease publishing. Freelance journalism isn’t an easy business, and it became a bit tougher when one of the most encouraging prospects for young journalists shut down."The letter, posted on a Tumblr account, contends that several of the freelancers are owed $1,000 or more. Perhaps paradoxically, the five freelancers who signed the letter say they would be glad (willing?) to go back to work for OpenFile provided it settles its bills and gets back on its feet.
