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.

Rates will hopefully go down soon.

My town has one of the highest teen suicide rates in the country... every year they spike at the beginning of the school year and stay pretty high til winter break.
This year has been lower than any that I can remember but there's still been a lot and it looks like it spiked again because we just lost 4 sophomores is last week.

Hopefully they'll start helping these kids instead of ignoring them soon.
