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.

I love when creativity is celebrated.

Say what you will about awards shows, but for every art director, cinematographer, writer, lighting director, costume designer gets recognition, I applaud for all the people who make things strikingly beautiful. I applaud those who make other worlds more real. Who bring life to stories that make our world broader. Where would we be without them?
