A few times a year, the WLT hosts WLT Off the Beaten Craft, a free presentation from an author who knows their stuff, focused on a genre, form, or topic that we don’t often get to talk about. These “Off the Beaten Craft” presentations are free and open to all.
About the event:
In this Off the Beaten Craft presentation, sensitivity reader Shenwei Chang will discuss the need for sensitivity readers when writing characters from marginalized communities. They’ll explain what exactly sensitivity readers do and what kinds of qualities are needed to be a good sensitivity reader and they’ll also discuss some best practices for seeking out sensitivity reading services.
