Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

The idea for a 6-word story came from Ernest Hemingway.

One day he bet a friend that he could write a whole story in 6 words.
His story was "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn."
He won the bet.

Smith Magazine had a contest last year. People had to write a memoir in 6 words. They collected 1,000 stories and made a book.

You can read some of the 6-word stories here.

What about you? Can you write a memoir in only 6 words?
Have a memorable weekend. See you Monday.
