Sensitivity Reading

Representation of diverse and marginalised groups is an increasingly important issue, but understandably most writers don’t have lived experience of marginalisation, and research can only get you so far. A sensitivity reader can check your manuscript and advise on any issues of representation of particular characters or issues.

I offer sensitivity reading for both fiction (any genre) and non-fiction (e.g. research, translations, journalistic writing). My areas of expertise are:

  • Bisexuality
  • Asexuality
  • Transgender and especially non-binary issues and experiences
  • Experiences of migration
  • Depiction and discussion of sex, sexual consent, and sexual violence.
