Writers Style Guide
The Writers Style Guide is based on the Associated Press Stylebook, with some notable exceptions and University-specific usages. If you find a rule here, use it when creating content for CSU. If your question isn’t answered in the Writers Style Guide, refer to the AP Stylebook. If you still have questions, and to find correct spellings, refer to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, online at merriam-webster.com.
If you have questions about writing style that are not addressed in any of the above resources, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Betty Grace Mickey at (970) 491-4883.
Note: The Writers Style Guide is not intended for academic papers or for scientific or technical writing. Students and faculty should refer to the appropriate resource for their field, such as APA or MLA.
