Here is what some of my favorite people have said about working with me:

“Bridget edited my nonfiction book, and I hope to work with her again on my next book! She is a talented professional, knows her craft well, and is a pleasure to work with. Bridget’s work made my book immensely better!”

—Gina M. Wilson, author of Skills That Build: The Hard Science of Soft Skills for Work and Life

“I have been working with Bridget Carrick for more than three years on a variety of copyediting and proofreading projects. She is thorough, conscientious, a quick learner, and always asks good questions. I highly recommend her.”

—Sharon Goldinger, owner of PeopleSpeak

“Bridget quickly became an indispensable asset. In an internal assessment sheet used to keep track of copyeditors’ past assignments and performances, Bridget is listed with highest marks for ‘Timeliness,’ ‘Correctness,’ ‘Comment quality,’ and ‘Speediness.'”

—Jana Tetzlaff, managing editor, Demographic Research

“We are so lucky to have Bridget as a part of our editorial team. She’s knowledgeable, reliable, patient with our dithering, and catches the craziest mistakes. Her attention to detail is superb, and she’s an excellent communicator. We honestly don’t know what we’d do without her.”

—Aleta Florentin, production manager, Amber Lotus Publishing

“We value her good judgment, attention to detail, no-nonsense approach, and timeliness—and as a long-distance coworker who’s always responsive, courteous, and receptive to constructive feedback on her work. Working with Bridget is a pleasure all around, and we’re glad to have her on board.”

—Alexandra Hähnert, assistant managing editor, Demographic Research (March 2018)

“I greatly appreciate the excellent copy editing job. Over the years I’ve noticed that the quality of the copy editing my papers received greatly declined at most journals. It’s nice to experience high quality copy editing again!”

“Bridget’s support on my open-access textbook was invaluable: her editing was precise, thorough, and punctual to boot! Her remarkable investment in this project demonstrates not only her competency as a writer/editor, but also her respect for the vision of the author.”

—Shane Abrams, author of PSU’s Open Access Writing Textbook

“Bridget also has a unique ability to find a project’s ‘voice’ or ‘perspective’—with words and design—and then weave it throughout in interesting and unexpected ways. She’s got stellar judgment too—perceptive about limitations but needing very little direction or supervision.”

—Stacey Lane, career coach and consultant

“Bridget was quick and thorough, and she was able to keep enough distance to not let her voice overtake mine.”

—Ross Winkler, self-published author

“Bridget Carrick is a thoughtful, detail-oriented editor who was a huge help on the forthcoming Rethinking Ethnic Studies (Rethinking Schools 2019). I can’t wait to see what she does next.”

—Kjerstin Johnson, copyeditor

“Bridget is deft with technical material as well as the more subtle, implied ideas that writing conveys. She was also effective and kind in her time management throughout the process, helping me to keep promises to myself and meet my own deadlines with a positive mindset. Above all, Bridget empowered me to trust my own abilities by drawing out the best version of my writing as we worked together.”
