Six Words Miami

Six Words. One Story. All Yours.

English | Español

Six-word stories get to the point:

“For sale:  Baby Shoes. Never Worn.”

“Strangers. Friends. Best Friends. Lovers. Strangers.”

“Penniless weirdo.  Struck lottery. Overnight genius.”

Your six-word story could get you invited to read at the 2014 Miami Book Fair.  It might even be selected as one of the six stories to be interpreted by a Miami photographer and published in a limited-edition postcard set.

“Who knows? You might get famous.”

Fiction, memoir, nonfiction, fantasy — doesn’t matter, but what we love most is Miami inspired.  Submit early.  Submit often.  Submit in English, Spanish, or Creole. There’s no limit to how many #6WordsMiami stories you can send in.

Submit your #6WordsMiami story to: Facebook, Twitter (use the hashtag #6wordsmiami), or via email ( by OCTOBER 15.
