Now that the cute puppy has your attention …
Editor, Accessible document specialist & Disability consumer advocate
I have been editing professionally since 2012, and a Professional member of Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), previously known as Editors SA, since 2013. I specialise in:
- Editing theses at Honours, Masters and Ph.D. levels
- Editing fiction and memoir manuscripts
- Conversion of content to Easy Read English.
I have worked with fiction author Kristian J Michael on her novels The Harvester, The Hangman and Gretchen-Jane’s Moon, and a non-fiction book by Dr Helen Edwards, Healthy Planet, Healthy People, Healthy Home.
In recent years, I have complemented this experience with consultation and editing work in the disability sector. In 2015 I facilitated the SA Writers Centre (now Writers SA) Disabled Writers Group — which, to this day, I wish we had named the Washing Machine Collective. In 2016 I was appointed the South Australian representative for the AFDO Disability Loop NDIS Champions project. I have contributed to website content consultation with the Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) Virtual Centre Expert Advisory Panel, developing an Australia-wide virtual resource for women and girls with disability; and I am working as a health/disability sector consumer advocate with SA Ambulance and numerous other organisations.
I offer services including:
- Easy English Document Translation & Design
- Accessible PDFs
- Thesis Editing – All Levels
- Fiction Editing
- Non-fiction Editing
- Biography/Memoir Editing
