Things Don’t Have to Be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs By Students

BUY: iBookstoreAmazonBN.com

Featured in the TED Books Library and inspired by Six Words’ popularity in English classes and art classes alike, SMITH Magazine called for submissions for illustrated Six-Word Memoirs, in which we asked students, whether in grade school or grad school, to create a piece of artwork that enhanced their memoirs.

The voices in Things Don’t Have to Be Complicated are younger than those of previous memoirists, but no less profound: “Said he loved me, he lied.” “Two girls, both of them me.” “Big dreams, big heart, big mouth.” “Break the rules now and then.” “Life is better with headphones on.”

At its core, the Six-Word Memoir offers a simple way for anyone of any age to try to answer the question that defines us all: Who am I?
