WEBINAR:

Grammar Girl's Guide to Advanced AP Style

Friday, Aug. 21, 2020
2-3:30 p.m. Eastern time

Words matter. I'll say it again. Words matter. We have seen what 2020 has done to the news cycle, spurring stories on everything from a global pandemic to the recent protests and unrest on race relations in this country. Every reputable news story has one thing in common: AP style.

With language being as fluid as it is, you can't rely on the tattered old copy of the AP Stylebook from eight years ago, let alone four 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.

What do you do? You gather your team and join Grammar Girl as she leads us through her advanced course on AP style.

 

In this jam-packed and informative session, you'll discover:
  • How to use hyphens and dashes properly
  • How to handle terms that relate to race and gender
  • How to write about crime
  • How to deal with quirks of social media, such as using emojis in quotations
  • How to write dates
  • What to do when quotations don't match AP style
  • And more

Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
