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.

Random acts of poetry and art.

by Bookndz on February 6, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is kind of what I do all the time through my writing. I give away copies of my books to public libraries. I also randomly give away my poetry/photography postcard designs at poetry readings and to friends. I gave 100 copies of my poem "You Are Loved" to a public school in Milwaukee last year. What if we all brought art and kindness to others on the same day? Some friends and I decided to create, Random Acts of Poetry & Art Day, on February 20, 2012. It is an international artistic pay-it-forward movement, with the purpose of spreading the joy of creation. Wherever you are on this day, please join us in sharing your poems and visual art for all to enjoy! It’s up to you what you do! Create, be inspired and share photos of your Random Acts of Poetry & Art (if you'd like) on our Facebook page for the world community to enjoy.
