Sometimes, I freelance. This is where you’d learn about that.

“Sensitivity” Reading

If you are an author writing a character outside of your lived experience, you may want what the publishing industry calls a “sensitivity reader” to vet your work for harmful tropes and stereotypes of marginalized characters. While I do prefer the space for Black characters in fiction to be created and occupied by Black writers, I can appreciate an earnest interest from non-Black writers seeking to make the works they create more inclusive.

I provide sensitivity reads and consultation for representation of Black characters (queer/bisexual, cisgender woman, American south/mid-Atlantic region), depictions of mental illness (Bipolar I Disorder, post-traumatic stress), and hoh/auditory processing disorders (adult onset). I read for all genres, with a particular love for speculative fiction/SFF, of course.
