This monthly project aims to showcase the six word stories that you find awesome! You won't have to do too much or spend too much time to take part. Simply note the group with your top three favourite six word stories and a brief sentence or two about what makes it a good six word story for you.

If supporting other six word story writers isn't enough incentive, we have a few :points: to give away for every single one of you who takes part! We also have the opportunity of accepting one of your six word stories into a raffle at the end for a month's feature on our front page!

Here are the pieces! Choose your top three, write a brief sentence about each one, note us, receive a few :points: as a thank you from us, and you will be automatically entered into a raffle for a feature!

Please make sure to do the following in your notes!
:bulletblue: State just the title of the six word story and your thoughts only.
:bulletblue: State whether it is fine for us to showcase your opinion to the public.

Deadline: Sunday 22nd March, Midnight PST.

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?

:new: Take part in our Anthology Project! :la:

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: :)
