    “Signe created my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile when I decided to switch from a career in sales to a career in interior design. I had no formal experience or training in my new field, but she was able to tell my story and present my experience to show that I had the skills necessary to

    succeed as a designer. Within weeks of using my new resume, I was hired for a job with a starting salary that exceeded my expectations.”

    "Signe is a careful and thoughtful listener and a critical reader who sees to the heart of a manuscript with a knack for knowing how to make a good writer even better."

    "I have worked with Signe Jorgenson as an editorial colleague for over five years, and I am regularly impressed by her abilities and determination to do the job right. She is careful, thoughtful, and most importantly for an editor, thorough. I have never heard her say “oh, it’s probably fine.” She w

    ill check a usage precedent and then double check, if need be. In addition to being an ace with grammar and punctuation, she knows how a story should be told. I have witnessed her give constructive, thoughtful content feedback to many writers. Signe can always see the big picture. She brings creativity and innovation to every project by stepping back to look skillfully at the work as a whole. This is what has made her such an excellent co-editor in chief at Stoneboat and Pebblebrook Press. As a writer and an editor myself, it is a pleasure to work with her, and I learn something new from her every time we work together."

    "Signe is an incredible editor. She worked with me in publishing my first collection of poetry, and the combination of personal attention and professional perspective was just what an author needs. Her attention to detail was phenomenal, and her openness to authorial conviction was reassuring. Every

    author needs someone like Signe in their corner."

    "Signe's knowledge of grammar, punctuation, and sentence clarity is impressive. She is careful and diligent in her pursuit of quality and accuracy. She pays great attention to details. She questions, then listens to her client's responses. In most cases I agreed with her edits. Where I didn't agree,

    she was gracious. Those instances were few. I had wanted to use photographs to break up the visual space in my poetry book. Signe offered another, a more creative, solution. 'Weren't you an art teacher? Do you draw? Do you paint? You should illustrate the book yourself!' With her encouragement, I did several illustrations. I appreciated her support, her wish for the book to be the best that our joint efforts could make it. I highly recommend Signe Jorgenson."

    "From June 2014 until May 2015 Signe Jorgenson worked as Pebblebrook Press’s lead editor on my book Impersonations. Her work encompassed every aspect of the project, from the receipt of the initial manuscripts to the actual publication of the book. Jorgenson’s editorial suggestions and decisions on

    matters such as font selection, page design, punctuation, line breaks, diction, and the order in which poems would finally appear were valuable contributions that resulted in making Impersonations a better book than it would have been otherwise. Over the course of the year that we worked together, I found her to be a reliable pro at every step and a pleasure to work with. I hope to work with her again on future projects and I recommend her to other writers as an editor that can be trusted to do excellent work."
