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.

Dad invited boyfriends to "family campout".

For family reunions, my family always does camping trips, because there are so many of us (I have 50+ cousins younger than me). And my dad decided that since it's over Memorial weekend this year that he was going to invite mine and my sister's boyfriends... We'll just say that it should be interesting if they can both come.
