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

Wednesday, June 29, 2022 • 1-2:30 p.m. ET

Writing • AP Stylebook • Editing • Internal Communications • PR

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 29 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 specific details you need to write and edit better.

Plus, you’ll learn about:

  • The Stylebook’s new inclusive storytelling chapter – what’s in it and why it’s important
  • Expanded guidance for writing about people with disabilities
  • Gender terms and the inclusion of they/them/their as a singular pronoun
  • Expanded race-related guidance, including terms related to Native Americans and Arab Americans
  • And much more!

Don't miss this unique opportunity!
