Testimonials

"We’ve always considered ourselves to be inclusive, but Beth and Alex have helped us achieve our inclusive and diverse remit in a more far-reaching and comprehensive way. As a matter of course, we now include them in our editorial process for every book that we publish. They are always prompt with their responses, make additional suggestions and carry out extensive research to make sure all references are up to date. As we do not yet have the resources to do this work in-house, they have become an essential part of our extended team."

"Working with Inclusive Minds has opened my eyes to the myriad decisions in a book's creation that determine its accessibility. From discussions around typefaces and spots colours, to shaping the messages embedded in a book's text and artwork, their advice and feedback has heightened my awareness of what contributes to a book being truly inclusive."

Anna Ridley
Commissioning Editor, Children's Books, Tate Publishing


"The final checking of Tender Earth from Inclusive Minds has been a really fascinating process for me as an author. The insight and subtle suggestions you have made throughout the MS have enabled me to make changes that I know will allow young people of all the diverse backgrounds in my story to see and feel themselves represented with respect, empathy and understanding. Often the edits required are small in word changes but enormous in the impact that the story can have in allowing young people to feel present and that their experience whether of disabilty or coming from diverse backgrounds can have in their reading of the story, and in reader's understanding of their own lives. I spoke to and researched aspects of this book with many young people and I want each and every one of them to feel their potential in the pages of my story. The process of working with Inclusive Minds on this final draft of my story Tender Earth has accessed for me what I would like readers to gain from my story... an opening of minds."

"Your expertise has been invaluable to us in planning one of our forthcoming titles. Your careful eyes and methodical journey through the illustrations — the words and worlds we had chosen to show in pictures — ensured that the book worked inclusively at every level.The team at Barefoot would welcome more of your expertise, both in our editorial work and to open the studio and our Barefoot world to as many children and families as possible."
