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: intense, challenging, inspiring.

by Amapola on November 13, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's my 3rd week of teaching in a masters programme - Every Tuesday I spend 6 consecutive hours with a group of 27 students. It requires a lot of preparation, a good sense of improvisation and encouraging their participation. The 6 hours fly so fast, just as if I was hosting a pot luck dinner party in my living room. They only difference is that they are hungry for the knowledge that we cook together and nobody gets drunk.

Love it!
