Thanks guys! :new:

Submit your entries here!




A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.

As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!

Please support the contest and :+fav: the article so that more can join in on the fun! :dalove:


Remember that this tournament will consist of collaborations!

This will be point based: the winning group will get the most points and points will trickle down to last place. Groups will then be shuffled around! That's right, guys! You will have a different partner for all rounds! A new partner and theme for each round, to keep you all on your toes! The top three people with the most points will be our winners. :la:

Welcome to SixWordStories!

A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.

As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!

We will leave you with a thought and conclude this introduction with a well known six word story by Hemingway: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

What does that tell you?

It's probably the only one I'll ever write- I'm a man of many words.

Someday I want to start my own podcast. That is a lovely ambition to be sure, but why am I telling you, Internet? Simple. I'm addressing the writers in the void. I want to practise with reading aloud poetry. One a week from one of you guys, one from a Biggie (like great poets, not Mr. Smalls) and then a Les Mis fanfic on the weekend. So, if you have poetry you want read aloud. Contact me with a name and i n the video I'll make sure to send a link to your DA or any more if you supply them.

:shamrock: "Coming in to apologize for not posting lately. Just recovering from a nasty cold and virus. That, and, my head is not well when writer's block kicks in. I promise I will post my six word stories in when I get the thoughts to stop being rusted up." :shamrock: :)
