I need to hire a professional sensitivity reader/consultant to have a look at a poem for me.
It's a bit delicate, because it isn't my poem! But I have, with permission, set it to music.
I haven't published yet, and I'm aware there is one line that might be ableist but in all honesty I can't tell. If it is, I need help finding words to ask the poet to change it.
Is this a thing that can be bought? How much am I looking at?
@artsyhonker Do you have a birdsite account? I know that people hang out there who do that kind of thing; I don't know who they are. And yes, it can be bought, but I don't know the price either.
Otherwise I can throw "poetry sensivity reader wanted" to my followers, do you have an email address or something that I can include?
