Editorial Style Guide

Our guidelines are drawn from Associated Press (AP) style because it is easy to use and familiar to a broad audience. If you can't find what you're looking for in this guide, check the online AP Stylebook first. 

Our preferred dictionary is Merriam-Webster's Collegiate. Check Merriam-Webster's after you've referenced the AP Stylebook.

Some exceptions to AP style are made. In those instances, the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition, is referenced. 

Social media managers will encounter unique challenges when communicating with their audiences. For that purpose, we maintain a social media website.
