Six Word Memoirs

Larry Smith
Six Word Memoirs
Visitors shared their six word stories during Sunday's Open Streets event in downtown Columbus.

Since the creation of the Six-Word Memoir project in 2006, over one million short life stories have been shared within the storytelling community at SMITH Magazine. Six Word Memoirs challenge people to describe their lives in no more than six words. A new take on this idea is coming in the form of Six in the City, a project aiming to engage and connect people in a conversation about the city. 



Six in the Cityhas several upcoming events and gatherings

  • Sept. 19-20 at the Independent's Day Festival
  • Oct. 5 at Katzinger's Deli 
  • Oct. 23 at Yoga on High Six  
  • Oct 25 a Six-Word Story Slam at the Columbus Improv Festival

This show originally aired on September 14, 2015 at 11 a.m.
