***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!
