The good people at Smith Magazine are masters of brevity. As the originators and home of the six-word memoir, they’ve created a craze that has spawned sextuplets of copy on everything from life (“Crap! I have to grow up.”) to love (“Heart writing checks head can’t cash”) and subjects in between.
Together with the folks at Mercer, they threw a contest and asked participants to submit their words on work. They’ve collected 400 of the best entries in their new Blurb book. Filled with pithy six-word insights, it makes a great gift for the graduate to be, the job searcher that is, or anyone who needs a reason to smile about work.
The book is available in our Pocket trim size (a sleek 6×9 inches) and is available in softcover for US $12.95. So what’s our six-word memoir on working at Blurb? “Encouraging creativity feeds our collective soul.”
Check out the book and head over the Smith Magazine website and contribute your own six-word memoir on the subject of your choice.
