About Bridgett

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 HarvesterThe 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
  • Short Story Editing
  • Résumé Design & Editing
