A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

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.

So give six a try—and make your words count.
