Sensitivity Reader*

A sensitivity reader is someone who reads through a manuscript with acute attention to biases and representation of marginalized peoples. It is not the same as copy editing or beta reading; it’s about sussing out problematic representations of typically marginalized identities and people.

As a sensitivity reader, I will read your manuscript a few times, then create and submit a report that thoroughly identifies any issues I may find. I will include quotes, citations, and provide suggestions on how to remedy the issues that I find.

I have several areas of expertise. While this is not an exhaustive list, it should give you a general idea of issues and subject matter that I’m comfortable with providing feedback on.

  • Black identity; anti-Blackness
  • Queerness; LGBTQ; coming out
  • Ableism and disability
  • Sexisim 
  • Mental illness

*Sensitivity Readings do not require a retainer. Rates will be negotiated on a case by case basis.
