The Six-Word Festival on Twitter is an exciting, action-packed three days of brevity and fun! But all good things must come to an end, and so too will our Festival on Friday (6/6, of course) with the chance to tell your story in just Six Words!
Six-Word Memoirs began as a contest in collaboration with Twitter in 2006, asking people to tweet their response to a simple challenge: “Can you tell the story of your life in six words?” Seven books and more than one million Six-Word stories later, Six Words® has become an easy and inspired form of engagement to get to the essence of anything.“Everyone has a story, what’s yours?”
Friday, June 6—1:30pm EDT
Prompt: “What’s Your Six-Word Memoir?”
Tweet: My #sixwordmemoir is “SIX WORDS OF YOURS GO HERE” #sixwords @sixwords
e.g., #sixwordmemoir “Threw spaghetti at wall; some stuck.” #sixwords @sixwords
As we close out the Fest, we invite you and all of our celebrity participants to share your #sixwordmemoir with us today! Look out for Six Worders from Molly Ringwald, Maria Shriver, Katherine Schwarzenegger, George Takei, Rick Springfield, Rob Delaney, Piper Kerman, Judge Alex Ferrer, Sesame Street, BabyCenter, Jason Biggs, Jenny Mollen, Simon Doonan, Abbi Crutchfield, and Baratunde Thurston.
• Each day during the festival, we’ll be giving away six Six-Word Memoir books at random times throughout the festival. All you have to do is tweet with the hashtags we’re using during each of the prompts, as well as follow @sixwords.
