Trainer: Crystal Shelley
Cost: Free members/$30 for nonmembers
The concept of sensitivity reading is met with differing opinions, from praise for being a necessary service to cries of censorship and cancel culture. This session will provide an overview of what sensitivity reading is and isn't, what to look for, and the reasons why it's valuable. It'll also empower editors to have conversations about authenticity and representation outside of a sensitivity reading role. Not all editors are—or want to be—sensitivity readers, but we can leverage our relationships with writers, publishers, and corporations to advocate for accurate representation in service to readers.
