Grammar Girl’s Guide to Advanced AP Style

Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2022 • 1-2:30 p.m. ET

The Associated Press sets the standards for news writing, and AP style is the foundation of reputable public relations writing.

Because language is fluid and new events sometimes require new language, the AP editors are continually updating the AP Stylebook: a revised entry here, a new topic guide there. That means you can’t rely on your tattered old copy of the stylebook from years ago. You need the most up-to-date information available. Without it, you run the risk of your messaging standing out for all the wrong reasons. Whether you write for your intranet, press releases, media outreach or even just email, a well-defined style remains a pillar of strong, effective communication.

What can you do to ensure your communications are professional and stylistically modern? Gather your team and join Grammar Girl as she leads us through her advanced course on AP style.

In this informative session, you’ll discover:

  • How to use hyphens and dashes properly.
  • How to handle terms related to race and gender.
  • How to write about crime.
  • How to write about homelessness and climate change.
  • How to write dates.
  • What to do when quotations don't match AP style.

Don't miss this unique opportunity!
