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.
Some families are gung-ho about holding regular family reunions, while others would prefer not to go through the ordeal of rounding everyone up. This week, write about a family reunion you’ve attended, or one you’ve heard stories about. Was the event hosted by your family or someone else’s? Did everyone go on a trip together, or did it take place at someone’s house? There is bound to be some drama when families get together, so don’t forget to include some juicy details!
