In 2017, I tweeted that I will be doing free sensitivity reading services for any writer. I got to work with a couple of authors on their manuscripts and found the job to be very fulfilling. This is why I am officially launching my sensitivity reading services.

What does a sensitivity reader do?

A sensitivity reader reads through a manuscript for issues of representation and for instances of bias on the page.  The goal of a sensitivity reader isn’t to edit a manuscript clarity and logic, although that may be an additional service offered. A sensitivity reader reviews a manuscript for internalized bias and negatively charged language.  A sensitivity reader is there to help make sure you do not make a mistake, but they are also NOT a guarantee against making a mistake.– Writing in the Margins
