About Daphne

Daphne Gray-Grant grew up in the newspaper business: her parents owned a struggling weekly where she worked from the age of 16, even while completing an honours degree in political science at the University of B.C. Eventually, she left the family business to become a senior editor at a major metropolitan daily — the Vancouver Sun — where she worked for 10 years.

After the birth of her triplet children in 1994, she became a communications consultant and writing and editing coach. She is the author of 8 1/2 Steps to Writing Faster, Better and Your Happy First Draft. She has been blogging since 2006 and hosting a YouTube channel since 2017.  Her popular and free weekly newsletter, Power Writing, goes to thousands of readers around the world every Tuesday morning.

How to build your own style guide

The time has come. You have to submit your draft to a client or an editor. But you’re struggling to hit “send” because you’re not entirely sure if your work is clean and consistent. Sound familiar? The secret to submitting drafts with greater confidence is to have a style guide you can follow. And when the client doesn’t provide you with one, it’s important to have one of your own. I’ve put together an easy-to-follow PDF that demystifies the essentials of a powerful style guide, including:

  • The pivotal role of style in complementing your grammar
  • Understanding the nuances of up-style versus down-style headlines
  • Standards for presenting numbers, measurements and abbreviations

…and many other tips that will unlock a new level of excellence in your writing. This guide has been a game-changer for me and countless others I’ve coached, dramatically enhancing our writing efficiency and quality. Request your free copy below.
