A consistent writing style is essential to effective communications. Compiled by Furman University Communications, the editorial style guide provides guidelines for style, word use and other editorial topics particular to Furman. These standards apply to all published materials that represent the university to an external audience, in both print and electronic media.
This guide, which was last updated in April 2018, primarily follows the latest edition of the Associated Press (AP) stylebook with some variations that are particular to Furman.
