Queer Creatives Retreat Seminar: Authenticity Matters—Sensitivity Readers in Writing and Publishing (Zoom)

$65.00 Members
$65.00 Non-members

Sensitivity Readers (also called authenticity, diversity, or targeted beta readers) use their lived experience to help writers of all genres create more authentic and respectful portrayals of marginalized identities and communities. During this workshop, we will clarify the role of sensitivity readers and address misconceptions about this profession. Participants will leave with strategies for when and how to find readers appropriate for their manuscripts in addition to recommendations for how to prepare for these services. We will also discuss professional opportunities for participants interested in doing sensitivity reading work.

This workshop is part of the Queer Creatives Retreat and is open to writers of all genres and creatives of all types who identify as members of LGBTQIA+ communities. We also welcome folks who are questioning their gender or sexual orientation and are in solidarity with LGBTQIA+ communities. Please understand that our intention is to center LGBTQIA+ people at the retreat.
