FAQs

What Is A Sensitivity Reader?

A sensitivity reader is a consultant from a marginalized group who assists writers by reading their manuscripts and letting them know if there are any issues with context or phrasing as it pertains to that group.

Why Do I Need A Sensitivity Reader?

Sometimes writers are unintentionally offensive to marginalized groups. If you aren't part of a marginalized group, it's easy to make mistakes. This may result in your manuscript not getting published, or offending others.
