A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

SixContest #93: #PitchAMovieIn6Words

With the 89th Academy Awards approaching on February 26th, SixContest #93 is going Hi-Def. Take our latest challenge by pitching a movie in Six Words. This is your chance to re-write the script ("'The Graduate' told by Mrs. Robinson"), draft a sequel ("The Martian's Next Mission: Explore Venus"), or turn two classics into a blockbuster mash-up ("When Harry Potter Met Hufflepuff's Sally"). Which film title will be the next big hit? #PitchAMovieIn6Words

Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #PitchAMovieIn6Words when posting your Six Words to Twitter and Instagram!
