Six Word Memoirs

From Digital Photography & Sophomore English

February 27, 2017

Recently, Mrs. Zeko's sophomore English classes and Mr. Zeko’s Digital Photography students took their turn at creating Six Word Memoirs (See The Story of Six for more on form). According to the Six Word website, writing in Six Words is a simple, creative way to get to the essence of anything—from the breaking news of the day to your own life and the way you live it.

The Story of Six

Since the Six-Word Memoir debuted as a project of SMITH Magazine in November 2006, nearly 1 million short stories have been shared on Six-Word Memoirs and its younger cousin, SMITH Teens. In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veterans' groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or break the ice.
