Inspired by Ernest Hemingway's legendary shortest of short stories, For sale: baby shoes, never worn, SMITH Magazine founder Larry Smith challenged readers to describe their lives in six words. Seven books and more than 800,000 Six-Word Memoirs shared on SixWordMemoirs.com later, this short form has become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination, or simply break the ice.
