SixContest #31: Six-Word Novels to Honor Ernest Hemingway
For this SixContest, we are going back to the man who started it all—Hemingway! Literary legend has it Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a novel in just six words. He wrote: “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.” In honor of the great wordsmith’s birthday (July 21st) and the anniversary of his death (July 2nd), we invite you to take the same test. Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please submit only one entry per comment. Let’s get those literary minds rolling!
This SixContest runs through Friday, 7/18 (two weeks!) until 3:00PM ET. 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
