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.

Words are multivocal. Works are multilingual.

The words we speak may have many different meanings or interpretations, depending on the perspective and life experiences of the listener. On the other hand, actions transcend language barriers. One does not have to speak the language to appreciate a good deed. As the old saying goes, “actions speak louder than words.”
