Camilla Cripps is an academic and fiction editor and a lecturer in the editing and publishing program at the University of Southern Queensland. Through her interdisciplinary research into trauma-informed practice – spanning education, creative arts and psychology – Camilla raises awareness of the importance of trauma-informed principles and best-practice self-care in the creative arts, and how trauma affects the praxis of publishers, editors and authors. At present she is testing the efficacy of a set of trauma-informed guidelines for editors and implementing reading resilience pedagogy and reflective practice in early editing and publishing education to better prepare budding editors for the rigours of the industry.
