Joanna , a teacher from Omaha, NE asks...
How do I write: Writers Workshop Writer's Workshop Writers' Workshop ???????
Anne answers...
First, it is possessive, so you do need the apostrophe. And whether it is Writer's Workshop or Writers' Workshop depends on the context of the sentence. You could say, "I plan to attend a writer's workshop," and you would use 's. However, if you are holding a workshop for a lot of writers, then use Writers' Workshop in the plural.
