After I edit files through MicrostockSubmitter the metadata seems to be corrupt somehow.  If I later try to edit the metadata through Adobe Bridge I get the error "There was an error writing the metadata to image ...." 
If I open the image in photoshop I can edit the metadata there but it is a bit of a painful workaround if I want to edit several images.

You can either use exiftool alone from the command line, or if you prefer use exiftool gui.
You can do batches, restore, replace, complete metadata. Change individual items etc.

Actually StockSubmitter also uses Exiftool to write metadata to images.

So it there is any problem reading metadata after StockSubmitter wrote it to images, it should be some problem with Exiftool.

Also Adobe Bridge may be confused by different types of metadata in single image. StockSubmitter writes metadata in three formats - EXIF, IPTC, XMP - to make sure it is read correctly in any software.
Earlier there was no problems with reading metadata written by StockSubmitter in any program including Adobe Bridge. It is strange you have such problems now. When did you start to encounter this issue? Did you upgrade Adobe Bridge or something like that?

I just noticed the problem a couple days ago.  I haven't updated the Adobe software at all recently.

I'm having a problem with the microstocksubmitter software, not with finding a good IPTC editor.  I'm actually quite happy using adobe bridge... just saying bridge (and other programs) are having problems re-writing to the metadata fields after microstocksubmitter has had it's way with them.

Did you have this problem before?
This is very weird if you never had it, because StockSubmitter did not change metadata write method for quite a while.
May be you will remember any changes recently happened to your software configuration or to something else?

i had a problem with microsoft protools  in that what it calls the title wasnt getting read by all agencies.  with exiftoolgui i need to enter info for both iptc and xmp to satisfy all agencies

It actually depends on a stock.
