Overcoming Bias: Authors and Editors Discuss Sensitivity Readers

February 27, 2017

Publishing experts gathered for a CBC Diversity panel titled “A Second Opinion: Utilizing Sensitivity Readers” on February 16th to discuss topics like what a sensitivity reader is and best practices of how to work with one, along with a variety of perspectives throughout the process.

Panelists included author Kate Milford (Greenglass House); Jordan Brown, executive editor, HarperCollins; and Jennifer Baker, editor and sensitivity reader. Justina Ireland, author and owner of Writing in the Margins, an organization devoted to promoting and mentoring writers from traditionally marginalized groups (and which also connects authors with sensitivity readers), moderated.
