Writers' Circle or Writers Circle

When I titled my writing studio and my writing program " Writers Circle," I didn't mean the possessive Writers' Circle. In my title, the writers come and form a circle where they meet, make friends, and network with each other. They also talk and write about themselves or write fiction or just sit around a table and enjoy being here in my place with me.
In my title, Writers is plural and circle is a verb, not a noun.

Isn't that the beauty of language? We can make it say whatever we want.

Glenda -
Oh how wonderful that you've started the Writers Circle! With your old blog down, this is the first I've heard that it's up and running. I'm so happy for you, and so thrilled that you are able to share your wonderful talents with more students.

Good luck with it!

This site looks wonderful to me--so modern and upbeat! Even the black background that makes it so contemporary doesn't hamper readability. Well done, I'd say.

I like maybe best of all, your explanation of your title." Circle" as a verb--enticing.

Best of all is your opening that states that "circle" is a verb. On with your good work!
