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 #28: Share Life Lessons in Six Words

As summer nears, members of the Class of 2014 patiently await their graduation filled with both excitement and nerves. It’s a bittersweet moment, a time of change and growth. SixContest #28 asks you to impart words of wisdom and encouragement to all recent and soon-to-be graduates. Your six words can include a backstory (we love reading them!), but please submit only one entry per comment. Give the gift of guidance to the grads of 2014!


This SixContest runs through Friday, 6/13 (two weeks!) until 3:00PM ET. Our winner will take home a new Six-Word Memoirs book! 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
