Welcome to The Able Editor!
My name is Bridgett McDonald. I have been editing professionally since 2012, and joined the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), previously known as Editors SA, in 2013. My passion is in editing theses at Honours, PhD and Masters levels. I have completed several projects in the areas of Arts, Communications and Social Sciences.
As well as theses, I have edited several fiction titles by local authorÂ Kristian J Michael â€” The Harvester,Â The HangmanÂ andÂ Gretchen-Janeâ€™s Moon â€” and a non-fiction book by 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 â€” 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.
My passions have now come together in my role as Editor/Administration forÂ Determined2 Immersion Therapy, which I began in 2018. In 2019, I was accepted to the Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) Virtual Centre Expert Advisory Panel, developing an Australia-wide virtual resource for women and girls with disability.
I offer services including:
