Hiring: Sensitivity

Riptide Publishing, a publisher of the finest LGBTQ fiction, is hiring paid sensitivity readers. Our SRs will read manuscripts during
developmental edits with an eye toward any potentially inaccurate, inauthentic,
insulting, misrepresentative, harmful, or *-ist themes, phrases, or actions in
the text.

readers must be a part of the culture(s) or identity/identities they are
reading for.

need readers in all areas of racial, ethnic, and religious diversity, sexual
and gender orientation, and mental and physical illnesses and disabilities.

$1.50 per 1000 words.

our purposes, we’re searching for paid sensitivity readers, but if you’re
interested in doing unpaid beta reading for authors before manuscripts are
submitted to Riptide, please let us know that too, and we can add you to
another list. Anyone can be both an SR and a beta reader if they’d like
(although not for the same book), or just a beta reader, or just an SR.

Because intersectionality so strongly affects people’s experiences, preference will be given to readers who share the intersectionalities reflected in any given text.
