Morgan McCurdy has degrees in music and voice from the University of Washington and the New England Conservatory of Music. She’s spent her musical life analyzing how the music and language are interdependent, and how great composers reflect the smallest change in text in the music. She studied French, Italian, and German for musical purposes, and Latin and Greek for the heck of it. She wants to know what happened to the dog in every movie with a dog in it, and she want the loose ends of a story tied up, which can lead to some very helpful questions when editing a piece of writing. She also wants to achieve writing that flows and has a rhythm that keeps it entertaining, with clauses that compliment, and structure that illuminates. She loves language that is serious without being pretentious, avoids staleness, buzzwords, and assumptions. She has worked as an editor, a software business analyst, and a technical writer.
