About Editorial Style
The Associated Press Stylebook is the primary style guide for Bates communications and is worth having in any campus office.
Style consistency lets the reader concentrate on content without being distracted by variations in spelling and punctuation. Consistent style allows many voices to harmonize across the Bates community and into the world.
