About us

The Apostrophe Protection Society was started in 2001 with the specific aim of “preserving the correct use of this currently much abused punctuation mark” in all forms of text written in the English Language.

After briefly closing down at the end of 2019, a new champion for the Apostrophe Protection Society emerged in 2022 in Bob McCalden. As a passionate advocate for the apostrophe over several decades, he was convinced there was still a role for the Apostrophe Protection Society to play in educating people on this sometimes misunderstood item of punctuation. The APS has therefore been re-born, revitalised, and will strive to continue the mission.
