STORY SLAM TOMORROW! 6 Word Memoirs w/ Larry Smith

Who would have thought that years after Hemingway’s legendary challenge to wrote a whole novel in six words—”For sale: baby shoes, never worn”—he would have unintentionally created one of the hottest trends on the web? In 2006, SMITH Magazine gave the six-word story a personal twist, calling it the Six-Word Memoir.  Hundreds of thousands of people responded to the challenge of summing up your life in six words, including some famous New Yorkers:

“The miserable childhood led to royalties.” – Frank McCourt

Love New York; hate self. Equally.  – David Rakoff

“Secret of life: marry an Italian.” – Nora Ephron

“So would you believe me anyway?” –  James Frey
