Diane Mooshoolzadeh, The Indy‘s new copy editor, has been tickling the ivory keys since she was 4 years old. Now, on top of mastering sonatas, she’s keeping our writing clean and clear, using what she learned in UCSB’s writing minor to remedy everything from glaring spelling errors to obscure grammatical blunders. “I like fixing people’s mistakes,” she said. Originally from Thousand Oaks and a big fan of the outdoors, Mooshoolzadeh has most recently been slogging through our massive Best Of issue with her trusty Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. “I think it’s fun,” she said. “I’m weird like that.”
