At the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, we want to make sure our word choices are as uplifting and inclusive as possible because words are powerful. The following resources are to educate and assist writers and editors in being aware of words, phrases, descriptions, etc. that could be harmful to readers and to assist in suggesting alternatives to writers so that the writing is not harmful. Please note that we do not have any partnerships with the organizations or people whose guides and information we link to in this resource, nor is this document an exhaustive list. There is always more learning we can all do and continue to do; therefore, this guide will be a living document.
