LGBT Sensitivity Reader Services

When you send your book out to beta readers, you want to receive an avalanche of encouragement and support for your story and its characters. But what if that LGBT+ character or storyline you included has rubbed people up the wrong way and, instead of praise, your book gets negative press before it’s even published?

An LGBT Sensitivity Reader is a specialised editor who can read through your text with a critical eye in order to identify and inform you about any ways you may have misrepresented or stereotyped the LGBTQIA community, however innocently.

As an LGBTQ full-time freelance writer, editor and proofreader, I can offer LGBT Sensitivity Editing as part of my portfolio of professional services as it fits perfectly with my skills, knowledge and experience. As I have edited everything from short stories to full-length books, I can take on your manuscript with an LGBT focus and help you to avoid doing your characters – and fans – a disservice. I also offer a Disability Sensitivity Reader service.

My fees for LGBT Sensitivity Reader services start at £8 per 1000 words. If you have characters who are disabled or have mental health problems and would like to add Disability Sensitivity Editing to the package, the price for the two would start at £11 per 1000 words.

If you would like to hire me, or have a chat about how I can help you to develop your work, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
