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:

Contest Begins:

September 1st

Contest Ends:

September 30th,

Form:

Six word story ;P

Theme:

Questions!

The reason why we are doing a 'Questions' theme contest is because we receive a lot of submissions with questions that are not stories. Therefore, not only is this a contest, it is also a challenge for all those that are brave enough to take it on!

We strongly suggest that your question(s) take up one bit of the six word story (1-3 words) and not the entire piece. The more it takes up the entire piece, the less a story it will be!

Guidelines:


:bulletblue: One entry, per person.

:bulletblue: The entry must contain a minimum of one question and must be a story!

:bulletblue: The entry must be newly submitted to deviantART from September 1st.

:bulletblue: The entry must only contain six words and follow our guidelines.

:bulletblue: The Author's Comments must include: SixWordStories' Question Contest (Or you can copy and paste: :devsixwordstories:' Question Contest )

How to Submit:

Submit the entry to SixWordStories' Gallery here. You do not need to be a member of SixWordStories to enter; it's open to everyone and anyone!

Prizes:

One winner will receive a 3 Month Premium Membership, news feature, their piece submitted into SixWordStories' Featured folder! Two honourable mentions will also receive :points:, a news feature, their piece submitted into SixWordStories' Featured folder! Additionally, 10-15 entries also be featured in the announcement of the contest winners (news article), alongside the winners!

If you would like to give a prize to this contest, please note SixWordStories with the subject title: Contest Prize. We appreciate any and every support given! :la:

It would be best to :+devwatch: SixWordStories just in case there are any updates. We wish you the best of luck and hope you have fun as well! If you have any queries (or anything else), please do not hesitate to contact us! :love:

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?

One of my six-word stories, Marketing, has been stuck in the buffer for three days now.

interesting group, I'm surprised by how meaningful different combinations of six words can be.
