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.

Stars and Stripes is the only independent newspaper in the world to operate from within a nation’s Department of Defense. Although the paper is authorized by the DOD, its content and coverage is completely independent of DOD control or interference. Its singular coverage of the U.S. military offers first-hand accounts of life in peace and during times of war from the service members’ point of view.
