EDITING GUIDE* HEDS & DEKS No end punctuation. DEK should be 25 words or fewer. LOW COUNTRY, LOWCOUNTRY OR LOW COUNTRY? Unless stipulated by the title of a company, the Lowcountry (capitalized and all one word) is the region from Bluffton, South Carolina up to the southern portions of North Carolina. The city of Savannah is actually not within the Lowcountry. However, some homes in Savannah are built in the Lowcountry vernacular style. And, we eat Lowcountry Boil. AND Use “and” in complete sentences, but it’s ok to use “&” or “+” in the title of a store or brand if that’s how the brand prefers. Example: Jen and Jane had appointments for styling and blowouts at Hustle & Blow Dry Bar. Next, they went to Moss + Oak Eatery. SPACES Only use one space after punctuation. CAPITALIZATION Words should only be capitalized if it’s the first word in a sentence or if it’s a proper name. Never capitalize all letters in a word unless it’s an acronym or an abbreviation, like U.S.A. Example: She went to The Grey for dinner. NUMBERS Spell out numbers under 10, UNLESS the number is an age or measurement. Example: He ate two pies. Luckily, he did not eat 12 of them. DATES When giving a range of dates, abbreviate the month (per below) and separate with a hyphen like this: Jan. Feb. March April May June July Aug. Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec. Example: Jan.5-12, 2018 OR April 28-May 5. COMMAS Don’t use the Oxford comma (serial comma) unless necessary for clarity. Example: The recipe calls for corn, rice, beans and potatoes. STREETS Abbreviate St., Ave. and Blvd., but not Road, Drive, Parkway, Highway … as long as is it preceded by a street number. East and west are E. and W. when listed in addresses.
* Refer to AP Style.
PHONE NUMBERS All phone numbers should include area code, even 912. Separate with periods: 912.555.5555 WEBSITES Every letter is always lowercase. Example: savannahmagazine.com OR theparismarket.com DOCTORS Use M.D. Instead of Dr. So, instead of writing Dr. Charles Harris, it’s Charles Harris, M.D. NAMES If names listed have titles in them such as M.D., use semi-colons to separate names as follows: From left: First Last, M.D.; First Last, Ph.D.; and First Last, M.D. PHOTO CAPTIONS When listing names of large groups of people pictured, write From left: First Last, First Last and First Last. OR Back, from left: First Last, First Last and First Last. TITLES (AN EXCEPTION TO AP STYLE): Titles of books, magazines, movies and newspapers should be italicized. Titles of shorter works like poems and songs should go in quotes. So, Savannah magazine and The Godfather but “The Star-Spangled Banner.” M-DASH As per AP, M-dashes (the only dash we use) should have a space before and after like this: “In 2018, after many months of renovation, the restaurant finally opened — everyone involved breathed a sigh of relief — to rave reviews.” HYPHENATED (COMPOUND) MODIFIERS Adverbs with –ly never get hyphens. No hyphens with more, less, most or least. Example, “That show was the least watched sitcom on NBC last season” but “I was 18 when I got my first full-time job.” ABBREVIATIONS AND ACRONYMS First use of a term in every article should be spelled out, including Savannah College of Art and Design. Second use can be SCAD. Note: only signal the abbreviation or acronym in parentheses after the first use of the name if it’s a term unfamiliar to our readership or one we haven’t used much.
