Update: 8 more hours to get your entries in! For those that have already submitted, please double check your entry is accepted! :la:

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!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some awesome prizes to be won and 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:

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:

I'm not a hundred percent how or where to submit my piece. And I also don't know how to work the link in the description. I really, am sort of not good with this! Please tell me what I need to do! :) (Smile)

>.< I forgot about this one!
I came up with a nice one for the theme, but sadly, its only 5 words!
I don't want to add a word cause that will mess up the thing. But, its still not enough. :tears:

I meant to post and say this was an awesome prompt for a contest, way better than the idea I had. ^_^ Especially since I love irony and double meanings in my SWS.
