Diversity Reader Services

Helping writers develop dynamic, authentic, & well-rounded


What is a diversity reader?

Diversity readers, also known as sensitivity readers, are readers who identify with a marginalized group and can offer feedback to the writer about inaccuracies and harmful representation of their characters who share that same cultural identification. For more on diversity readers click to read my blog post.

    • Authentic character behaviors & dialogue
    • Interactions between characters
    • Stereotypes/biases

Get help and feedback on your characters before you get too far into the story and require major rewrites. You can schedule a consultation while you’re still early in the drafting stage. Consultations are $50 per hour. 

*Note: All payments are due with submission of project and are non-refundable.

My Process

Book a free 20 min call with me to get all your questions answered, talk about your project’s needs, and see if we’d be a good fit to work together.

If we decide we’re a good fit, I will email you a contract to sign for services provided. You’ll also receive login info and instructions for the client portal. This is where you’ll be able to submit your project for review.

Once the contract is signed, you’ll get an invoice for payment. You’ll pay the invoice and submit your manuscript through the client portal.

I will read your work and provide notes and feedback. Once done I will send it back to you.

Though I try to provide detailed notes in my feedback, I realize some things might need further clarification or are better understood when you talk through them. You have the option of booking a follow-up call (up to 1 hour) to chat about any notes/feedback I gave.
