Gain invaluable insights from the AP Stylebook editor into how and why changes are made

Price per location: $269

Whether we like it or not, language and its use are constantly evolving. As writers and editors, it is imperative that we invest the time to keep up. Fear not. Paula Froke, editor of The Associated Press Stylebook, is here to help.

AGENDA


AP style is not an unyielding law like gravity. It evolves as language changes and adopts new words and phrases appearing in the news. The Associated Press Stylebook's editors add or update entries throughout the year on Stylebook Online, then collect those changes in a new print Stylebook each spring. Paula Froke, lead editor of the Associated Press Stylebook, is here to help you catch up on what's changed.

Join this webinar on demand to hear what's new in the recently released 2019 AP Stylebook and gain insights from the editor herself, Paula Froke, into how and why changes are made.

Some of these changes include:

  • Expanded guidance on race-related terms.
  • Revised guidance on using accent marks with names of people who request them or are widely known to use them, or when quoting directly in a language that uses them.
  • Revised guidance on using the % symbol in most cases.
  • More detail on how to use hyphens wisely.
  • An updated and expanded entry on suicide, including when and how it is acceptable to report a suicide method and guidance on reporting the contents of notes or letters.
