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.

Teacher becomes student, won't stop learning

by sisterpoet on January 28, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My students are involved in a 6 word memoir lesson I created. They have made me laugh, they have made me cry. They amaze me. It is push and pull, give and take and in the end, we all learn. My favorite comment of the day was " I saw that on instagram this weekend". In other words, one of my little peeps chose to share her work that she wrote in class on Friday. No extra credit, no HW assignment....she just was so excited about her creation she wanted to spread the word. Awesome!
