National Poetry Month: Day 14

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 chicagomemoryhouse@gmail.com or Facebook us. To submit longer pieces visit our Submit page.

We all have music artists that we connected with in our youth. But as time goes on, our music tastes tend to change. This week, pick a song you haven’t listened to in over ten years and give it another try. Write a short personal essay about your reaction to the song. What was it about that song that made you connect with it at the time? Do you still like it as much as you did then? If not, what do you think that says about how you’ve changed as a person?
