Summary
As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of "correct" writing? Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, and opted for spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL. Now she makes a case for breaking the rules laid out by Strunk and White: she offers a world with more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware.--
