What is a sensitivity reader?
“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
I do sensitivity reading for:
- Nonbinary man
- Trans masculine
- Separation Anxiety Disorder
- Suicidal ideation
Please note that my experience is my own. Minorities are not a monolith, so while I will do my best to check for harmful content, I am not a guarantee. If you would like me to read your scripts, send me an email at email@example.com.
All rates are in Canadian dollars. If you cannot afford these rates, feel free to email me and we’ll figure something out.
