I am an experienced developmental editor and am available for hire! I am a multi-published author with an agent. I previously interned for a year at Folio Literary Management. I hold a BA in English from Colby College and a MLitt in English from the University of St. Andrews.
Price: £250 flat for a manuscript up to 85,000 words. If the manuscript is longer, please contact me about availability and custom quote.
If you aren't familiar with the concept of a sensitivity reader, I suggest you check out this excellent website by author Justina Ireland.
Here are my areas of expertise:
* Bisexual representation
* Lesbian representation
* Disability and mental illness
* Fat representation
* Polyamorous representation
When looking for a sensitivity reader, it's important to find someone who shares as many of your character's intersectional marginalisations as possible. I cannot and won't read for manuscripts where the character is outside my lane. I am a bisexual, polyamorous cis woman who has been fat throughout her life. I also have five chronic medical conditions: MS, diabetes, PCOS, major depression and anxiety. I am happy to read for one of these marginalisations or any intersection of them.
I guarantee absolute discretion and confidentiality for you and your project. I have a standard non-disclosure agreement for writer clients, and am happy to work with publisher contracts. I will prepare a detailed report for you in the form of an editorial letter, as well as leave comments in the manuscript. I may also make suggestions for the story. I am not a copyeditor and will not look for technical mistakes.
