AP vs. Chicago

Writers and editors who need to navigate multiple style guides, particularly The Associated Press Stylebook and The Chicago Manual of Style, as well as writing instructors, students, and general "word nerds" should check out AP vs. Chicago. Launched in 2011, this resource was created and written by Karen Yin, an author with over 20 years of experience as a copywriter and editor who was inspired to begin this project after "the publishers of AP and Chicago style both unleashed brand-new (exciting!) editions in 2010." Visitors to AP vs. Chicago will find numerous informative articles addressing various aspects of language style and usage in writing. The main page highlights several featured articles sorted into Funny Posts, which were written specifically for AP vs. Chicago, and Fun-Free Posts, many of which were originally written for publications such as the Copyediting newsletter. Both categories offer helpful and often entertaining discussions of a wide variety of topics, such as how to style text messages in fiction, a comparison of AP and Chicago style rules for numbers, and a list of "Nine Obscure (but Useful) Recommendations from The Chicago Manual of Style."
