Smith Magazine’s 6-Word Memoir Project

We all have a frustrated writer in us somewhere, right?

 

Well, Smith Magazine has an outlet for even the most inexperienced memoirist.  It is called the Six-Word Memoir Project, and it invites would-be writers to sum up their lives in six words.

Sounds easy?  You have no idea….

 

 

To say that writing six word memoirs is addictive would be an understatement.  I am totally obsessed!  And in addition to entertaining myself at stop lights and such composing my epic story, I am also wild about reading the stories of others.  I subscribe to the their newsletter, check out their website and blog regularly, and recently started following them on Twitter.

 

Am I stalking Smith Magazine and their Six-Word Project?  Maybe….

 

But so will you once you see some of the incredible work people are putting together!
