Financial Writer’s Stylebook to be renamed and affiliate with SABEW

February 12, 2012

Posted by Chris Roush

The Financial Writer’s Stylebook is now The SABEW Stylebook, and members  of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers can get the guide at a 20 percent discount.

In addition, 10 percent of the revenue goes to SABEW.  Marion Street Press, the book’s publisher, and SABEW agreed to the deal, which also includes free shipping.

The stylebook was first published in 2010 and now includes more than 2,000 entries of financial terms. It is a resource for business journalists who want to improve their writing, and it explains hard-to-understand business terms. The stylebook also helps you decide whether to define a business term for your readers.

The stylebook’s authors are UNC-Chapel Hill business journalism professor Chris Roush and UNC-CH editing professor Bill Cloud. Roush also serves as SABEW’s research director. The stylebook has an advisory board of word experts in business journalism that act as a sounding board for new entries and provide the stylebook with insight into appropriate use of business terms in news stories.

Copies of the new edition of the stylebook will be made available for the first time at SABEW’s 49th annual spring conference in Indianapolis on March 15-17.
