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.

Knew where to come for hope.

I havn't come onto smithmag for almost half a year..in which time I've slipped back into old habits, gotten new scars, and have nothing to hold onto. To see all of these familiar people on here, people whos stories i know, whos display photos i recognize, and remebering the unity and understanding we all feel for eachother. As a 15 year old going through all of this alone..you guys havn't failed to bring me hope. Thanks you guys.
