Dutch Fork Experiences "The National Day on Writing"

By Kathy Lott, English Teacher

“These words are yours to keep*” Writing Six-Word Memoirs

In celebration of “The National Day on Writing,” sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English, Dutch Fork High School invites you to participate in writing your six-word memoir.

“Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in six words. Papa came back swinging with, ‘For sale: baby shoes, never worn’” (Smith Magazine).

What is your story? Distill it into six words, and post it on our banner in the Commons during the day on Wednesday, October 20. For more ideas, see
