ACES: The Society for Editing

ACES members receive a 20% discount on one single-user subscription to AP Stylebook Online each year and one registration for the AP Stylebook Workshop.

What is AP Stylebook Online?

AP Stylebook Online takes everything you love about the print Stylebook and adds internet functionality and online-only content to make it a more robust, convenient tool.

As AP updates its style throughout the year, users can get email updates and check the new entries and recent changes section online.

You can create your own custom listings and add your own notes on AP's entries.

Subscribers can submit questions via Ask the Editor and search thousands of previously answered questions in the archive. Ask the Editor has more listings than the Stylebook itself.

Stylebook Online is mobile optimized so you can use it on your desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet, and always access AP style guidance wherever you go.

What is the AP Stylebook Workshop?

Join editors from The Associated Press for an engaging four-week online workshop guaranteed to build your AP Stylebook knowledge.

Learn directly from the AP editors who set AP style, in a mix of live webinars and on-demand videos on Wednesdays from 2-3 p.m. EDT on Oct. 25 and Nov. 1, and 2-3 p.m. EST on Nov. 8 and 15.

You also get access to AP Stylebook Online and AP Stylebook Study Guides to help you develop your knowledge.

You'll keep access to the online course materials until Nov. 30. Live sessions will be recorded so you can watch at your convenience or rewatch to deepen your understanding.
