Clear and consistent government communication

The Australian Government Style Manual is now in Beta stage with content development soon to get underway. 

The Style Manual is the authoritative source of rules and guidance for government writing and editing. Our aim is to make all government communication clear and consistent.

The Style Manual will reflect contemporary government usage and have sections on digital media and content design.

Content development

Currently we are scoping content requirements with the aim of releasing a live product in 2020.

An Australian Government governance board and working group are overseeing the Style Manual. This will help us to ensure that it is useful to everyone who works in government writing and editing.
