I think it looks a bit fussy and OTT having the apostrophe in there for the plural, what do you think?
After lots of thinking and reflection on some comments here and on Facebook. I vote no apostrophe. It’s not as though writers own the festival.
Could it have something to do with the wish or hope for a plurality of writers against a specific writers’ festival?….just askin’…
Interesting question. Who knows what the hell these phenomenon are all about? Apart from money that is.
Doesn’t strike me as a possessive. So, no apostrophe needed.
Yeah, no ownership here!
I’m on Team Apostrophe for this one… Nice bass btw!
Team apostrophe appears to be a minority, nothing wrong with that!
We leave out more and more, and, to some extent it happens because of laziness and indisposition towards thinking. I believe, all perfectionists voted for apostrophe.
Microsoft Word doesn’t like it when I use apostrophes. It doesn’t like it when I don’t. I can’t win. I like apostrophes – as long as they are used properly. Maybe life would be easier without them. Their use is certainly in decline. Pity: I think they raise us above the cave man. Lot of cave men where I work. Wouldn’t know an apostrophe if it kicked them in the bollocks. Is this a lament? I suspect so.
SAVE THE APOSTROPHE!
