About the Project

1

In a world where the speed of communication is ever-accelerating, economy of language is increasingly important. The 6-word memoir, a genre inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s legendary 6-word story, serves as an exercise in concise writing. The challenge  of the 6-word memoir is to encompass or express an entire life experience in only 6 words. But I believe 6 words is too easy. Thus, I propose the 5-word memoir project, to which this blog will be dedicated.

Each day, I will feature a new 5-word memoir, written by a different author. I will include each author’s first name, age, and current city of residence, and an image if the author prefers. I aim to include memoirs by people of all ages, races, geographic locations, and walks of life.

If you would like to submit a 5-word memoir, please click here.
