The AP Stylebook on Inclusion in Reporting, Writing and Editing
The Associated Press Stylebook has been the leading reference for public-facing corporate communications for nearly 70 years. It offers professional guidelines on grammar, punctuation, definitions, rules for usage, styles for capitalization, abbreviation, spelling and numerals.
In this PRSA Learning Webinar, Paula Froke, editor of The Associated Press Stylebook, will discuss why inclusion matters in writing and editing. Froke will walk participants through some of the principles of the AP Stylebook’s major inclusion chapters and entries including race, gender, immigration and disabilities.
