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 master level: exhausted, hopeful, fulfilled.

Just came back from my second session of teaching @ the Masters in International Communication Management @ my uni- They all confessed they hardly did any reading due to a deadline for another assignment today... but their engagement in the interactive exercises was truly rewarding!

I realised that teaching 6 hours in a row is a gift to make learning happens - the trick? trigger their curiosity, encourage them to participate!!

They promised they'll read for next class. After today I have no choice but to trust them!
