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.

What's your Six-Word Stump Speech?

by Larry_D._Smith on October 14, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This question of course is timed for this political season, and also a project SMITH Mag is doing with the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. We have an installation/exhibit at the Center in which anyone can share a Six-Word Stump Speech and more than 25,000 people have so far. We're also doing a live storytelling show at the Center on Oct. 29 (http://bit.ly/Oct29NCC), and you can share your own Six-Word Stump speech in the comments here, as well as on the Center's site
