Editorial Style Guide

Clear, consistent writing is critical to the success of any communication project. Our services include:

  • Professional editing
  • Writing for your publications
  • Editorial reviews

The Harper College Editorial Style Guide .PDF (updated 06/01/2015) has been designed to help you prepare copy for internal and external communication materials. For questions not covered in this guide, consult The Associated Press (AP) Stylebook or the college edition of Webster's New World Dictionary.

If you produce a job outside of Marketing Services, you will need to have your copy reviewed by Marketing Services, prior to publication. We'll collaborate with you to ensure that your finished project communicates clearly and meets the College's editorial standards.
