Jeanne Allison worked for 14 years in publishing before she joined the English Department in 2006 to run the Writing Certificate Program. During her career in publishing, she was an acquisitions editor for Mosby-Year Book (now Elsevier) and EMC Paradigm. In that position, she wrote book proposals, editorial, and development plans, and worked directly with authors to develop their books. She also worked as a development editor for Mosby and as a freelance editorial consultant.
