Consultancy


Inclusive Minds offer a range of consultancy services to suit your needs. From consultancy on individual titles, to entire forthcoming lists, we can help you ensure that the products you produce are authentically inclusive and accessible. Consultancy can be provided virtually or face-to-face.

Consultancy costs are negotiable, and will depend on the exact nature of the work. Signatories of the 'Everybody In' charter are eligible for a discount, and concessional rates can be agreed for very small, independent companies and not-for-profit organisations. Discounts can sometimes be offered for other reasons. Please contact us to discuss this.

The following gives an estimate for the purposes of initial budgeting. Please also account for travel costs for face-to-face consultancy. For further information or to book, contact us

Please note that we are often extremely busy, so do ensure that you make enquiries and book our time well in advance.

*Inclusion reads usually take place at copyediting stage. These are not sensitivity reads, as they are carried out by someone with an awareness of many different facets of diversity and inclusion, although not necessarily direct experience. These kind of reads aim to pick out aspects of a book that can slip in as a result of unconscious bias (and if the book is an inclusive one, in areas that may not be the main facet addressed in the book) – such as negative language, problematic descriptions of characters, and aspects that perpetuate stereotypes.

The reading fee includes a straight inclusion read of a fiction book and feedback from Inclusive Minds. On occasions where it becomes apparent that a manuscript requires more in depth suggestions for resolution, research and further consultation, an additional fee will need to be agreed.

For inclusion reads of more complex projects, please get in touch for an estimate.
