alaysia sensitivity reads for Wednesday Books, an imprint of Macmillan USA, HarperCollins, and Penguin Random House. She provides comments within the document and a detailed write up that correlates with the in-document comments. Her focus is authentic Black characters but she is sensitive to other underrepresented and or marginalized characters.


Sensitivity reads are typically offered on a referral basis. However, requests can be emailed in for consideration. Pricing quotes (per book or project) and additional details will follow if available. Rates are set with a 4 week turn around but the sensitivity write up can be delivered sooner depending on Alaysia's work load.

If you have more than one book/project that you'd like to inquire about, please fill out this form as many times as needed. It will keep the information received organized.

***NOTE: A sensitivity read is not a guarantee that a project will be safe from criticism. One reader cannot represent all experiences and/or opinions within the Black or BIPOC community. That being said, this read will help to point out major issues, triggering language, and potentially harmful or problematic sections. Investing in a sensitivity read is a positive step toward creating a safe environment for your readers.

Great! Thanks for inquiring!
