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 new members of your profession.

Rather than being threatened or annoyed by them, help them along. You won't be in it forever, and they could benefit from your experience. ASL interpreters have had a problem with this for ages; so much so that our national organization has decided to make it a focus in coming years. Personally, it makes all the sense in the world to help newcomers along: the benefit to our clients (the Deaf community) is substantial.
