consultation services

I do consultations as a sensitivity reader and cultural editor on manuscripts, articles, and other projects. I also do editorial services for both fiction and nonfiction across various genres. 

Noemi is an excellent editor! As I work through her suggested edits my troubled paragraphs change from run-on-sentences, vague unsubstantiated and confusing, to actually looking pretty good. To the essay I would like it to be. Noemi offers professional editing and experienced feedback. She will help you find your way in the thicket to a piece of writing that is clear and concise with offering also knowledge of standard practices in grammar, syntax, and journalism. She also helps you learn to be a better writer by leaving clear and concise comments. She is in this way a teacher as well. I highly recommend her. A good editor is a beautiful thing.

I hired Noemi to do a sensitivity reading on a project of mine (an essay that had been greenlit by the New York Times), to check my language in speaking of disabled and neurodivergent people--and also to flag anything else in which I might have erred. I had a very fast deadline, so the work had to be done on a quick turn-around. Noemi's reading was incredibly fine work: critical and compassionate, beautifully reasoned, backed by solid argument and evidence, encouraging, and eloquent. I would recommend Noemi to other writers, and also hire her again in a heartbeat; we all need to find readers/editors whose acumen, editorial skill, and compassion require us to think and write better.

Noemi has repeatedly come through for us. Noemi has read through manuscripts for us to find problematic areas and point out racist, ableist, and homophobic content that slipped past both the writer and us, the publishers. Noemi has also advised us in our event productions, helping us go through potential writers to feature, advising us on the candidates and problematic content from them that we may have missed. We are fortunate to have found an expert such as Noemi who we can turn to, someone we feel has not only been an editor-for-hire, but has strongly contributed to the way we continue to do our work.
We believe that anybody who is in need of an editor with a sharp eye for writing and social context can’t go wrong with Noemi Ixchel Martinez.

Noemi worked as a copy writer with me on a curriculum. She is a gem. We had a short turn around time and I was impressed with the quality of copy and research with the time parameters, especially for such a reasonable charge. I would definitely ask her to join me on another project and would recommend her to others.

Noemi was my Sensitivity Reader for a picture book about a LGBTQ family. She was thorough and professional, plus she was able to get my manuscript back to me in a very timely manner.
