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.

Teaching Six to seven and eight.

Wish me luck, guys! Tomorrow I begin an experimental project. I'm working with a public school teacher to introduce a second grade class to the joys of six-word memoiring. (I'm aware that last word is not a real word, but it damn well should be.) Should be interesting to see what they come up with. Inspired by this guy named Larry, I have decided to start off with giving them a topic. Topic is: returning. Feel free to make suggestions. I will keep you posted. Really excited about this!!
