How's Your Style?

Updated: May 1, 2019

Is your (writing) style ready for a spring tune up? Then it’s time to check out the latest update of the city’s writing style guidelines

New and updated entries include:

  • Branch names and capitalization

  • % vs. “percent” – this is a change from the AP editors themselves. Yep, they update their rules from time to time too

  • City facility names

This City of Carlsbad writing style guide highlights some common AP style conventions as well as a few deviations from AP style.

If you have any questions, now or in the future, please reach out to any of us here in the Community Outreach & Engagement Department (yep, this is a new-ish name too).
