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.

HELP: How can I publish more?

by TheAngstyPoet on April 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Hi all,

I'm an amateur writer and I don't know how or where to send pieces to be published. To be more specific, what are some good magazines to be involved in? Or what are some anthologies that are currently accepting submissions?

I just need some advice on how to start getting my work and name out. If there's an online resource for this, please post!
