6-word memoir

In Editorial on February 17, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Everyone has a story. Can you tell yours in six words? Submit yours to be considered for SMITH’s next six-word memoir book. The first book, Not Quite What I Was Planning, is a NYT bestseller featuring more than 800 writers, famous and obscure. If you want to submit your own, go to Smith Magazine’s site.

Somehow, I resonated with this one (minus the ‘editorial’ part)…

Gloria Steinem‘s 6 word memoir: “Life is one big editorial meeting.”)

Note: I posted this because it was a social mechanism that PLD had tossed around awhile ago. It was a fun idea but ….

What, I think, made it successful for Smith was that they took it from the celebrity angle.

  1. you do realize that’s one of our Nancy’s “new” columns in our magazine for the past 4 or 5 issues right?
