The AP Stylebook Webinar: What’s new in AP style?

June 20, 2023 | 1-2:30 p.m. ET

Writing • AP Stylebook • Editing • Internal Communications • PR

Many writers and editors learned AP style in college through a series of quizzes that tested whether they had memorized chapters A-F of the AP Stylebook, for example. But AP style changes with culture and with popular language usage, so if you committed the Stylebook to memory years ago, it’s valuable to catch up with what’s new.

The Associated Press Stylebook has long been an authority on grammar, spelling, punctuation and more for writers and editors. In recent years, the Stylebook’s editors have taken a broader approach to the kinds of issues writers and editors encounter, offering guidance on complicated, evolving questions like how to write about race, gender, disabilities and more.

Join us on June 20 to learn what’s new in AP style from Paula Froke, editor of the AP Stylebook, as she explains both the “what” and the “why” of style changes. This webinar will cover both the big-picture issues and the nuts-and-bolts details you need to write and edit better.

You’ll learn about:

  • Updates on gender-related coverage and terms.
  • Guidance on terms related to abortion.
  • And much more!

Don't miss this unique opportunity!
