Editing, Writing, & Consulting Services
Writing Diversely is dedicated to helping writers create diverse and inclusive stories. Our team of editors and readers offers a full range of editing, writing, and consulting services.
Our signature service. Sensitivity readers review fiction and nonfiction texts for content that may mispresent or perpetuate stereotypes of a given group or groups. Sensitivity readers flag those errors and may provide resources and tips for corrections in future drafts. Learn more about and request a sensitivity read here
