Buck, there is no FW reference book. The judges for the writing challenge are all seasoned writers and many of them are also editors; however, there's not one definitive style manual that they all use. And neither is any particular style made mandatory for the other FW writing contests.

If you hire a FW-endorsed editor for your MS, you and that editor will have a conversation about style, particularly if your writing is nonfiction or academic.

I hope that answers your question--if not, let me know, and I'll try to elaborate more fully.
