12 Style Tips for Halloween

October 19, 2013 By Samantha Enslen Resources

In celebration of the best holiday of the year — Halloween, of course — ACES has put together an editorial style sheet full of ghostly terms.

So dip your pens in ink (or blood) and start copy editing content about the season. You’ll have the confidence of knowing you’re using devilishly correct usage.

So stick with these spelling recommendations, copy editors. May your Halloween be spooky, your trick-or-treat bag full, and your jack-o’-lantern bright.
