    Location Names

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by Mist Walker, Oct 29, 2010.

    Right, well when writing a synopsis, I know it's standard to capitalise character names the first time they appear, what about location names (that don't exist)?

    Thanks in advance

    If it the proper name for the place, even if it is fictional, then capitalize it.

    i think the op is actually referring to 'all-caps' not just 'capitalization' which only refers to the first letter...

    and no, place names should never be in all-caps...
