Diversity & Accessibility Consulting:
$50 an hour for consultations, not including review; $50 for a diversity review of your organization, which is one hour of time but must include an additional one hour minimum consultation; $1,000 speaker fee for events that include up to 2 hours of involvement, additional $500 for each additional hour, plus travel and other costs if applicable must be arranged in advance. All costs will be outlined in a contract.
I am happy to provide consulting services to individuals and organizations who are looking to figure out how to outreach to more diverse audiences, staff, or partners, as well as how to make events or spaces more accessible for a variety of disabilities. I specialize in the following areas, but can address broader concerns as well:
- How race and class intersect and how to make a place, event, or organization welcoming to diverse people
- How to respect religious/spiritual differences, with a specialization in inclusiveness of Muslims
- How to attract diverse applicants, volunteers, and participants
- How to make your venue, office, or event accessible to people with physical, mental, or other disabilities
- Issues around gentrification and how artists sometimes contribute to it
- Cultural appropriation – what it is, what it is not, and how it harms
Editing & Reviewing:
Base rate of $20 per hour, minimum 1 hour charge, PLUS Copyediting is $4 per 12 pt standard font typed page. Content editing is $6 per 12 pt standard font typed page. Content reviews are $6 per 12 pt standard font typed page, and if editing services are needed beyond that it adds hours.
Sensitivity Reader: These services involve reading/reviewing text when an author or editor wishes to be sure it is presenting accurate, non-offensive information about marginalized communities. My areas of expertise in this regard are Indigenous/Native American issues, Muslim issues (particularly from the perspective of a convert), Witch/Hoodoo Practitioner issues, Multi-cultural/multi-racial issues, Disability issues (including mental health), Polyamorous relationship issues, Single parenting issues, and LGBTQ issues with a focus on Bisexual, Non-Binary, & Two-Spirit identities. Sensitivity reading is NOT the same as actually editing, it is more of a heads up, but it is very intense and required me to read through hurtful things, and then professionally and with detail explain to you what was hurtful about them, so my rates are based on the physical/intellectual work combined with the emotional labor. If the writing is good and does not require a lot of advice to “fix” areas that were offensive, stereotypical, or otherwise hurtful, I will still provide you with additional insight and background that can help you when you are editing (and in future writing) to give you a knowledge base. Sensitivity reading rates begin at $75 for every 2,000 words of reading involved. That covers the reading and an emailed explanation of all areas that I have thoughts/suggestions regarding. If you need additional discussion beyond that, a base hourly rate of $35 will go into effect with a minimum 1 hour charge.
