Upcoming webinar: The Latest in Style
3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST) Wednesday, October 10, 2018
At Mark Allen Editorial, we've got style. And, as with the language itself, that style changes all the time. In this 90-minute webinar on style guides, we'll talk about:
Mark Allen has juggled style guides for 30 years as a copy editor, starting with the Associated Press Stylebook and, as a freelance editor, the Chicago Manual of Style, the Publications Manual of the American Psychological Association, local style guides, the style manual of the US Government Publishing Office, and the United Nations Editorial Manual.
One of those style guides (AP's) updates every year, usually with some significant changes. Chicago Manual of Style updates much less option, but it underwent a major update in the fall of 2017.
Mark has spoken about style guides for ACES: The Society for Editing, the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, Copyediting, Allstate, and the Twin Cities Professional Editors Network. Join him October 10 in an online webinar for $50 per person, which includes a Q&A period and a two-page handout of style guide updates.
If your style guide looks like one of these, it might be time for an update.
Send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can discuss your training needs.
