If you've ever written anything for publication, you know that as soon as you begin, you run into a million different questions about the style of the piece: What should you capitalize? How should you refer to someone's job title? Should you use the "serial comma" or not?

To keep things consistent here at Goucher, we've created the following guides to help you navigate the stylistic minefield. We've included entries about all of the issues that we commonly run into, but we also expect this guide to evolve over time, so if you can't find something -- or have a question about something you do find -- please feel free to contact Stephanie Jayakanthan, our writer/editor, at stephanie.jayakanthan@goucher.edu.
