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.

Your Six Words About Prom Night

SixContest #23: Share Prom Stories in Six Words

It’s that time of year again. Teens are fitting dresses, ordering corsages, and suffering through embarrassingly brave prom proposals. This week’s SixContest asks for your prom night stories in Six Words. Tell us fond memories, tales of fashion faux pas, or about the prom you wish you had. Your six words can include a backstory (we love reading them!), but please submit only one entry per comment. So, will you share your prom with us?


Contest runs through Friday, 5/2 until 3:00PM ET. Our winner will take home a sleek key tag thanks to our friends at variouskeytags.com. Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages (remember to tag Six Words!): facebook.com/sixwordmemoirs | twitter.com/sixwords | sixwordmemoirs.tumblr.com
