CASE Testimonials

Hear from some of our Cultural Accuracy & Sensitivity Editorial Services clients, including publishing executives, museums, bestselling authors, and editors.

CASE clients include executives, editors, curators, and authors from:

Partnering with Hannah and the KAA team has been a consistently positive experience. Their team’s exceptional attention to detail and commitment to cultural accuracy is commendable. KAA’s sensitivity editors are not only thorough but also incredibly perceptive and the value they’ve added extends beyond the pages, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for diverse narratives and for authors writing outside of their lived experience. I strongly endorse their services to any writer seeking to enhance their manuscript with conscientious and respectful representation.

Carrie Bloxson, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, Hachette Book Group

It was an absolute pleasure getting to work with Kevin Anderson and his team. We reached out to them for an authenticity read and the reader we were paired with was thorough, highly attentive, and had an excellent grasp of the subject matter at hand. We’re extremely grateful to the KA team for their professionalism and resourcefulness, and highly recommend their services.

Thea Diklich-Newell, Associate Editor, Voracious Books, an imprint of Hachette Book Group

I found my CASE editor’s work incredibly helpful and encouraging. I greatly enjoyed reading what she had to say, and I will implement most, if not all, of her suggestions. She is an extraordinarily thorough and thoughtful reader! Thank you for connecting me to someone so intelligent and well-read, and for all your help. I feel reassured in letting this manuscript go out into the world now.

Ursula Werner, novelist, poet, attorney; author of Magda (She Writes Press, 2025)

Our KAA cultural accuracy editor brought invaluable first-hand cultural knowledge, as well as editorial acumen, to our developmental edit of a manuscript our institution will publish. Her edits were constructive as well as affirming, grounded in supporting the authors’ intentions for the project, and offered concrete, actionable recommendations to the writers, who were grateful for her insight!

Ivy League University Museum

I’m so grateful that we collaborated with KAA on the Fearless Firsts series. With careful attention to historical and cultural accuracy, their reviewers made these books for young readers sharper, richer, more precise, and better overall. Based on research, expertise, and lived experience, the KAA editors provided helpful context and insightful reasoning for phrasing things differently. I highly recommend their services to any author or publisher needing additional pairs of eyes on a given work!

Anna Sargeant, editor, Sourcebooks

Hannah and the KAA team partnered with Godine for a cultural accuracy edit for an upcoming title at Godine. The author and I were grateful for the thorough, constructive feedback. I will certainly be working with them again and highly recommend their services.

Celia Johnson, Senior Editor, Godine

KAA provided the BMA with knowledgeable, thoughtful outside readers to ensure our label copy was as accurate, clear, and sensitive as possible. Our presentation of complex topics benefited from the support of readers who were not just subject matter experts in the topic, but also attuned to the specific needs of museum visitors.

Baltimore Museum of Art

I’m so happy that I moved forward with a Cultural Accuracy & Sensitivity Edit at KAA, so my book could be more inclusive and resonate with a wide range of readers. They spent time making sure they found the best reader who could address my concerns and personal blindspots. My reader shared clear comments and provided great alternative words and phrases to explore using instead. I also loved the helpful resources and links to articles to provide me with more context and education. I not only have a better book because of a CASE, but I also feel like a better human. I have been recommending this service to my friends and clients because I truly believe all authors should have a Cultural Accuracy Edit before sharing their work with the world.
