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!
After our successful Opposites Contest, we hope to continue the contest spirit by hosting a tournament where contestants will battle it out to write the most epic Six Word Story!
Please support the tournament and :+fav: the article so that more can join in on the fun! :dalove:

Are we allowed to edit previously-submitted entries before the deadline? (I'd assume that after the deadline is a definite no-go.)

I just wanted to know what the process was in selecting those going through to the next round. I was curious.

We have a panel of judges (mostly made up of admins in the group) and they will decide which ones go through and which do not. Depending on how many submissions we receive, we may let only half of those who have submitted go through. This is based on quality of the six word story, originality, etc. Basically, what you'd usually measure a literature piece. :nod:

hello 3wyl,
I've submitted my entry, should I mark it as mature content or not? (I'm not marking it at the moment. I think I didn't describe the improper act too explicitly, so... hahahaha XDD)
here's the link

I'd say go for moderate mature filter for ideologically sensitive material. :p

3wyl Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it's fine as it is without the mature content tag on there, but I'm not staff so I can't give you a concrete answer. =/

I'd personally not put it on, but staff may think differently.

Can we mention being in prison? Or does it have to be about the arrest?

Prison should be alright, if you can tie it in with getting arrested somehow?
