Application for Developmental Editing
I'm delighted you're here to find out more and apply for the opportunity to work with me on your manuscript!

I look forward to learning about you and your work. As a reminder, I'm only working with fiction writers at this time.

Because I want to make absolutely certain that I am the best editor for you, and because my time as a developmental (content) editor is in high demand, I ask that you please fill out this simple application form. This will give me the information I need to make sure I'm the right editor for you, and if I'm not, I'm happy to refer you to someone else I think would be a better fit.

After filling out this application, keep an eye on your email in-box; I'll get back to you as soon as possible, usually well within 24 hours.

I can't wait to learn more about you and your work!

All best,
Joan Dempsey
