You will need to be familiar with the STYLE BOOK which states the standard for journalism writing. — You need to write out the numbers one through nine. You need to write out a number that is the first thing in a sentence (Twenty-nine soldiers were killed.) You need to put punctuation marks inside quote marks. — The basics can be easily learned, and complicated questions can be answered through appropriate searches online.
