Writers or Writer'sAuthors or Writers
Pen. It'?s a pen: Writer, writer or writer?
One Rocky Mount Writers member wanted to know how to relate to the group:! Is it supposed to use a group of writers, a group of writers or a group of writers? One group of authors can be a group of authors. Ethel, Lucy, Annabelle Lee, Miss Kitty and Aurora visit their group of authors every Tuesday unless they find something better to do.
I' m a member of more than one group of writers. You could reason that writer in this regard is an adjective that says what kind of group. Chicago Manual of Style supports the use of no-apostrophes. During a Lake Writers (not an apostrophe: a Lake Writers meeting) gathering, our intrepid guide introduced his Chicago Manual of Style and showed us that the apostrophe-free format is not inappropriate.

As a rule, the abbreviation is not used if for or by instead of in the longer version would be appropriate: a wireless tape for citizen, a staff for teacher, a guideline for writer, a petition of the teamsters. However, one is necessary if a concept is a multiple that does not end in s: a children's clinic, a People's republic, the Christian Association of Young Men.
One of the things I did was checking out was to find organisational titles in the lake, a complement in today's Roanoke Times and a bundle of examples: Moneta Lions Clubs held an official evening meal on June 21 at the Pointe at Mariners Landing in Huddleston to celebrate the eighteenth year of the club's founding with Lions Clubs International.
Excludes qualified Sears Commercial One and Sears Home Improvement Account (sm) account, unless otherwise specified. Remark: It is not Sears' Map (or even Sears' Card) or Sears' Home Improvement Account - although Sears clearly owns it. In order to use the unique possessive author, you must have something that HEARS TO ONE writer:
This group of writers, who had only the author himself as a member, gathered in a cupboard in the community archive. So I can really say that our group of writers had a lunch on Rocky Mount Writers last night.
