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.

In our feature articles, we will be showcasing selections of the wonderful six word stories submitted to our bi-weekly word and theme prompts. New bi-weekly prompts will also be announced here.

Thanks for including my SixWordStories. I feel rehydrated! Will continue efforts to encapsulate concepts into six words that will delight, provoke, inspire or make them look within and be at peace. Yes, I shall certainly share with you concepts and themes worthy of encapsulating.
