English Common Errors: After – English editing.

After is used instead of afterwards only informal styles, usually in phrases such as ‘soon after’, ‘not long after’ or ‘just after’. Careful users generally prefer afterwards, especially at the beginning of a sentence:  ‘shortly afterwards it was announced that the bank had collapsed’. In American English after is often used instead of afterwards.
