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