To write is human,

to edit is divine.

      -Stephen King

  • If you are serious about writing, professional editing is a necessary step toward success. Before you submit to an agent, enter a contest, or self-publish your work, let a copy editor sift through your words to catch the mistakes.

  • I am a certified copy editor, an award winning author, a literary contest judge, and a teacher who specializes in both exceptional student education and children's literature.

  • I serve as the president and critique-group moderator of the Tampa Writers Alliance, and I am a member of the Florida Writers Association, the American Copy Editors Society, and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

  • When I'm not reading a middle-grade novel, with three dachshunds asleep in my lap, I can be found mucking stalls, feeding chickens, or looking for something new to read---a real book with pages I can turn, sniff, and place a bookmark between.

  • Let me help you polish each word until every page shines. Together, we can make your work the best it can be.

    Happy writing,

         Annette Masters
