Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleisser of SMITH Magazine tell us about the wildly popular initiative in which they urge readers of their online magazine to contribute six-word stories about their lives. The results have spawned books, a Japanese translation, a multi-city live performance series and a teen website with a rabid fan base.

Here & Now listeners wrote their own six-word memoirs and we've assembled this little book of them. Write your own in the comments below and we'll add it in volume two.

You can view it below or on Scribd. The project was inspired by SMITH Magazine's Six-Word Memoir® project, sixwordmemoirs.com.
