Memoryhouse has recently been collecting six-word memoirs from the UChicago community and now, to celebrate National Poetry Month, we are sharing them with you! We will be publishing two six-word memoirs every day in April along with fun writing prompts to inspire you to write your own six-word memoir, poetry, or autobiography. Want to share your six-word story with the world? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook us. To submit longer pieces visit our Submit page.
write about a time when you were out of your element, immersed in a community or culture that you felt was very different from your own. Observe your own behavior as an anthropologist would. Write about how this relocation and disorientation affected the way you reacted to the people around you, and caused you to reflect on yourself.
