NOTE: I can be hired as a sensitivity reader. My prices range on the word count of the project and can be negotiated. See my Commissions page for my email contact form, or send me a direct message on Twitter. State you are looking for a sensitivity reader, share your word count, story genre, and a two sentence summary of your work.
These are the topics I am a sensitivity reader for:
