Communication Reference Tools

  1. Style Guide

This Style Guide is compiled by the Alliance Communications Team. We generally follow editorial style detailed in The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style. However, we also have developed styles related to our specific work in the Alliance. This Style Guide is a living document, with new and revised styles added periodically. To suggest revisions or additions, please contact Jim Killam.
