Hello,

I'm not sure which of the following sentences is correct. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.
Us writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
Dmitri

Yunusi supposed you wanted to say our writers
No, not really. What I want to say is:

You and I are writers, and we (us?) writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.

Kind regards,
Dmitri

It's "we", not "us", 'cause "we" is the subject of the sentence.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it should be we.

we and writers here refer to a same idea.(2 people)

It's a good structure to use.

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for your help!

Kind regards,
Dmitri
hi dimitri again me,

probably it can be as we writers i thought
Let me try to explain -

"We writers" is correct because, as YoHf said, "We" is the subject of the sentence. If you weren't using the word "writers", you would say "We think...", and that is how you say it even with the word "writers" in there.

On the other hand, when the writers become the object of the sentence, you have "us writers". "They were displeased by the conduct of us writers".

I hope that helps.
