Imagine your 6-word memoir here.

Do you remember listening to National Public Radio's 2008 story on Smith magazine's call for six-word memoirs?   Did you try it out?    It's not too late.

What would your young writers say about their years on this earth?   How would they sum them up in six?  

If you've tried the two sentence journals, maybe this would be a good starting point.   Write a two-sentence memoir.   Reduce it to six words.   Of course, be open to complete revisions that include shifts in focus.

They're so tiny, you can post everyone's work in your classroom at the same time!
