With each project, writers can encounter dozens of grammatical nuances that don’t seem to have obvious answers—even with advanced knowledge based on years of professional experience. This is where the AP Stylebook comes in handy. It allows writers to focus on crafting a story without putting excess energy into researching questions related to writing style.
First published in 1953, the Associated Press Stylebook is considered “the journalist’s bible.” Reporters, editors and others use the AP Stylebook as a guide for grammar, punctuation, style and reporting practices. Although some publications use a different style guide, the AP Stylebook is considered a newspaper industry standard.
But with more than 5,000 entries, learning the basics of AP style can be a daunting task.
In this presentation, you will learn:
- The history of AP style
- Common writing mistakes
- Tips to remember
- Recent changes and new entries
- Social media guidelines
