My name is Noemi Martinez and I am a sensitivity reader, cultural worker, diversity editor & researcher. 

My specialities are disability, neurodivergency & diversity. Contact me if you are in need of an experienced cultural editor, sensitivity reading, authenticity reader or any diversity & inclusion questions or research in your manuscripts & media.

I am available to do evaluations and editorial services for your articles, essays, poetry collections, chapbooks and manuscripts. I also provide editorial services such as manuscript consultations, language editing, feedback and detailed notes depending on where you are on your project, your timeline and your budget. 

When I do a sensitivity read, I look for any bias, problems in language, stereotypes and negatively charged language with special focus in my areas of expertise as detailed to the right. If there is a specific  identity that you’d like me to be aware of, I’ll make notes where appropriate or when I believe it might come across as insensitive to audiences. I deliver my notes in a document to the editor or writer along with any areas that I believe contain harmful representations, stereotypes or inaccuracies.
