As Valentine’s Day nears, we’re asking you for your biggest stories of love and loss. But there’s a catch: We want you to tell your story in just six words. Tweet your story with the hashtag #sixwords or call 877-8-MY-TAKE.
We'll be collecting your replies on this page and sharing some of the most attention-grabbing memoirs — and complete stories behind them — on Valentine’s Day.
Larry Smith, editor of Smith Magazine, and pioneer of the six-word-memoir project explains why this format works so well when it comes to matters of the heart.
