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!

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!".
It would be best to 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!
