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.

Come join us for not camping.

Thanks to catsmeow for shouting out to those of us who don't camp out. Come join us! We won't sleep in sleeping bags or tents, shower outdoors with bugs, or make a campfire. We won't be putting on insect repellent. We won't need bear spray either.

Sign your name below and we will get back to you for the dates of our first annual We Ain't Camping Out.
