Every organization that produces print or online content of any kind needs an in-house style guide. Not only will a style guide help to ensure consistency across documentation (from capitalization, to serial commas and fonts), it will support the organization's brand recognition and manage readers' expectations as well.
In-house Style Guides
Join us on Twitter on Tuesday, February 9, at 2 p.m., EST, for our next #EditorsChat. Elizabeth d'Anjou (freelance editor and instructor/Editors Canada director of professional standards) and Elizabeth Macfie (bilingual editor, indexer and trainer) will join us to share their advice about creating in-house style guides.
What are some of the best practices for creating style guides, how do you choose a style that fits and when should you (gasp!) break the rules? Tweet with us!
