Style Conventions

The material we publish conforms to our in-house style manual. This manual aligns closely with The Associated Press Stylebook and The Chicago Manual of Style with a small number of additional local conventions. This point is significant for authors who prefer avant-garde approaches to syntax, capitalization, punctuation and pronoun selection. We use quotation marks, capital letters, paragraph breaks and narrative structures that are well-established in the industry. We will not publish in alternative style formats, and this rule is not subject to negotiation.

This approach follows with author names, as well—you might call yourself “bob jones” or “Bob from Detroit” or “Bobby J.” but we will call you “Bob Jones.” We welcome pseudonyms but they must look like a real name.
