Sensitivity Reading

When you write about a profession or experience that is outside of your own, research is important! This is another level to that research. We are here to support you in this process.

Express Return* 2 Days + $90

A sensitivity reader provides feedback on potentially biased or stigmatizing characterizations. If your characters have elements that could be read as bias, our sensitivity readers will point this out to you and make constructive suggestions.

Our readers assess for elements like unconscious bias, stereotyping, and negative language that takes away from your writing, and can provide insight into how to develop robust characters whose experiences may lie outside of your own.

We also provide single and multiple sensitivity readings on the same manuscript if desired, which would result in multiple sensitivity readers providing feedback on your work. As a sensitivity reader is reading and responding from their own experiences, these experiences and subsequent opinions may differ. As such we offer discounted rates if a writer chooses this option.

We have readers specializing in many areas. Please browse our reader profiles to see what we can do to bring your manuscript into focus.
