Default Writer's Beat, or Writers' Beat?


The logo up the top says Writer's Beat, but other parts say Writers' Beat.

So, which is the real Writer's/Writers' Beat?

Neither and both

Or in other words: I don’t know
It seems to change from time to time.

It should all say Writer's Beat since that was the original name. Where do you see Writers' Beat?

Oh, I see it was my mistake.

I saw Writers' Club and stupidly made the connection. There is none, of course!

Ah, good. I know the staff check the placement of the apostrophe in the things we post, but I thought something might have slipped past unnoticed.

And our name is officially The Writer's Beat. "The" being the key. A single writer.

Which, when I think about it, doesn't make sense, since we are many. Hmm. Although, we are each individuals, and this forum is different for each of us, hence The (each) Writer's Beat.

. . .? Am I making any sense at all?

Yes, I have noticed the 'the' before...

No, but isn't it THE writer's beat?

Although yes, if you put 'the' it would be wise to put Writers'beat...

As in, THE ONLY beat, but for ALL writers, instead of THE ONLY beat for each writer...

Lol.

THE ONLY beat for each writer...
But, we're all individuals, and the forum means something different to each of us. Writing to our own beats, so to speak.

No, but isn't it THE writer's beat?
Huh? It is.

Officially: "The Writer's Beat writing forums"
Colloquially: "Writer's Beat"

We get our s-apostrophe kicks with the Writers' Cafe, Members' Feedback, and Members' Choice.
