James River Writers supports writers from marginalized communities writing and publishing their own stories. We also encourage writers who are not from those communities to avoid stereotypes and bias when writing about people and situations of which they are not directly a part. We would like to compile a list of members who offer the service of sensitivity reader.
If you are a JRW member who is qualified to edit or read for internalized bias and negatively charged language and you would like to be added to this list, please contact us today. This is a new listing for us, and we are exploring the parameters and opportunities for writers and readers.
