103 (who?)
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.

As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! :la:
Please support the contest and :+fav: the article so that more can join in on the fun! :dalove:

BleedersofInk also has a contest on 'What Would You Do?' so go take a gander at that too! :la:

Contest Begins:

January 1st

Contest Ends:

February 14th, 10pm GMT


'Around the World in 80 Days' ...with a comical twist!

As put forward by TwilightPoetess, "The contest idea is to write a six word story about a journey "Around the World in 80 Days," with the use of humor.

For instance...

"Day eight:
Ripped my parachute. Again."


Six word story ;P

If you would like to give a prize to this contest, please note SixWordStories with the subject title: Contest Prize. We appreciate any and every support given! :la:

We have opted to give more people the chance to get subscriptions rather than a select few winning longer ones. From previous contests, the competition has been pretty fierce, so through doing things this way, we hope it relaxes things and makes everything more enjoyable!
We were always a group "Where quantity matters!". :dummy:

It would be best to :+devwatch: SixWordStories just in case there are any updates. We wish you the best of luck and hope you have fun as well! If you have any queries (or anything else), please do not hesitate to contact us! :love:
