6 Word Story

RALEIGH: "Apparently, Ernest Hemingway was lunching at Luchow’s with a number of writers and claimed that he could write a short story that was only six words long. Of course, the other writers balked. Hemingway told each of them to put ten dollars in the middle of the table; if he was wrong, he said, he’d match it. If he was right, he would keep the entire pot. He quickly wrote six words down on a napkin and passed it around; Papa won the bet. The words were “FOR SALE, BABY SHOES, NEVER WORN.” A beginning, a middle and an end!"

That is a story that is told about Ernest Hemingway. We have decided to continue this idea to honor National Library Week by having our own 6 word story contest. We will be accepting 6 word stories the week of April 7th - 13th. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 15th and will win a $25 dollar prize.

Let's see how creative you can be.
