“I recently had Rachel Guerin edit and proof my 80,000 word manuscript. When the corrected manuscript was returned to me after a few weeks, I was . . . well, let’s just say I was more than satisfied with all the red markups. Rachel’s editorial notes were spot-on; her suggestions for word changes and cuts were precisely what the doctor ordered; and she even cleaned up my semi-haphazard punctuation quite nicely. Rachel was a real collaborator. She truly wanted my manuscript to shine—to be the best it could be. Believe me, this type of editorial support is a great comfort to a writer. I can say without any hesitation whatsoever: Bridgetown Editing is synonymous with first-rate, quality work.”

— Jim Vines, Author and Screenwriter

“Rachel was a treat to work with. Her marvelous insights and suggestions made my manuscript all that it could be. I’ve worked with three other editors in the past on various projects and she was by far the best. Her communication was clear, her emails prompt, and her edits perfect for the novel.”

— Lorelai LaBelle, Author, Nothing More Beautiful

“For Skint Press’ first publication, Ms. Guerin worked as lead copy editor–but ‘right hand (wo)man’ seems like a more apt title. She assisted and excelled in every aspect of bringing the manuscript to publication, from helping to develop the writers’ work while keeping in line with the piece’s tone, to proofing the final product to ensure complete adherence to house style. I will be working with Ms. Guerin again and absolutely recommend her to others so that they too benefit from her expertise.”

— Mary Locke, Executive Editor, Skint Press

“Rachel is excellent at offering constructive feedback while nurturing your pattern of thought. She is skilled at drawing out and maintaining the inspiration your voice brought to the page. As an editor, Rachel was able to offer me writing cues that would spark a new, more cohesive way of expressing my ideas and thoughts, for a segment of the book that just didn’t seem to flow well. Rachel was timely and thorough in her work, and always encouraging—as well as, offering up the perfect phrase that was escaping me.”

— Kelly Melillo, Author, The Best Places to Pee: Portland

“I have worked with numerous editors over the years and Daniel and Bridgetown Editing is by far my favorite. I have worked with Daniel on several pieces for both general and academic audiences. Working with Bridgetown Editing has improved my writing and my writing process. Feedback is always constructive and incredibly valuable while still respecting my voice and goal for the document. I look forward to working with Bridgetown editing on my next project.”

— Devora Shamah, Research Manager, Gateway to College National Network

“Rachel Guerin has been an indispensable resource in my job searches over the years. As an ambitious young professional, I’ve made it a priority to maintain a variety of resumes, each tailored to different positions. Rachel has helped me be clear and concise, and has made sure that each resume emphasizes my strengths relevant to a particular job. She has edited my resume and cover letters with quick turnaround times, which has allowed me to apply for jobs immediately. I’m confident that her work helped me obtain my current job as a manager at a major museum in Los Angeles. It’s definitely worth it to make sure your first impression to potential employers is going to look professional and make an impact!”
