Presented by:    Ragan

The Associated Press Stylebook is the quintessential guide for anyone writing copy for external audiences, but with so much guidance, it can be tricky to navigate.

Should you capitalize the first letter in "iPhone" or "eBay" when the brand name starts a sentence? Should there be a comma before "Inc."?

Who better to guide you through the most salient points of the stylebook than New York Times best-selling author Mignon Fogarty—known to millions as Grammar Girl?

What you'll learn:

  • Tricky apostrophe rules, such as how to make "Donald Trump Jr." possessive and whether people participate in a "writers' strike" or a "writers strike."
  • Advanced comma rules, such as when the AP wants you to use a serial comma, and when you need a comma after an introductory clause.
  • New additions and updates to AP style, including words that can be offensive (e.g., "Eskimo") and words to use with care (e.g., "suicide").
  • Common questions, such as whether a cat in a tree is an "it" or a "she," and when to use the spelling "blonde."
