- Synonym for “Fellow Sufferers”? 4 answers
I am writing a paper on teaching life writing texts, and I have a section that discusses the benefits to a reader who has gone through the same traumatic experiences as the author of the text. My heading for this section is currently:
Benefits for the Sympathetic Reader
However, "sympathetic" isn't quite the right word, considering the fact that the reader does not necessarily have to have shared these experiences in order to sympathize with the writer. Ideas?
