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 will 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.
