In 2006, Smith Magazine started the 6 Word Memoir project. It took its inspiration from Ernest Hemingway who – it was said – was challenged with telling a short story in six words. Not just part of a story, the whole thing. His tale?    “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” [Sometimes it is written never used].    Devastating. David Wyffels illustrated some of the impressive entries received over the years for Oprah’s O Magazine.
