What Do Sensitivity Readers Do? With Elliott Dunstan

January 16, 2019

6:30 - 8:00 pm

Biased and stereotypical representation is harmful, and nobody wants to be labelled a problematic writer. Sensitivity readers act as another line of defense against misinformation, helping authors who may wish to write outside their own experiences. Writer and editor Elliott Dunstand explains the role and responsibilities of sensitivity readers and share his experiences reading for d/Deaf, trans, and mental illness representation.
