Here are some folks who advise on various types of sensitivity editing. We do not post their rates. Please contact them for more information about their services.
Do you have a sensitivity/diversity editor who you highly recommend? Contact us about them! At this time, we are only considering editors who are disabled, d/Deaf, neurodiverse, Spoonie, and/or those who manage mental illness. Intersectionality with gender, race, culture, and sexual orientation is most welcome! Please note: We are not a consulting/hiring agency. This is merely a list of professionals who provide a service.
Tip! We’ve added spaces within the email addresses. You will have to remove the spaces when you contact the sensitivity editor through email.
