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.

SixContest #25: May is Date Your Mate Month!

"Date Your Mate Month" aims to bring romance back into the lives of couples; that’s why this week’s SixContest is all about the mate! Couples, tell us your ideal date in Six Words. For the single folk out there, describe your perfect mate in six — or share a favorite story courtesy of a date made through apps like Tinder or dating sites like OkCupid, JDate, or Match.com. Your six words can include a backstory (we love reading them!), but please submit only one entry per comment. So, what are you looking for?


This SixContest runs through Friday, 5/16 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 #sixwords): facebook.com/sixwordmemoirs | twitter.com/sixwords | sixwordmemoirs.tumblr.com
