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.

I first came across SMITH and the Six Word Memoirs about a year ago, and I bought Not Quite What I Was Planning. I submitted a few writings, and then was notified a couple months later that one of mine was selected. Today I got word that the same memoir will be in the next Six-Word Memoirs book. I'm in! How cool is that?
Where's my agent? Where's my contract?
