Six Word Story Every Day

Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a story in just six words. The result: “For sale: baby shoes, never used.” Hemingway regarded it as his greatest work.

Hemingway’s six word story and self-critique have never been verified but what is irrefutable is that great stories can be told in 60,000 words or just six.

Six Word Story Every Day is a collaboration between Van Horgen, copywriter, and Anne Ulku, designer. It is a storytelling exploration through language and typography posted every day in 2010.



Now we invite the creative community to keep SWSED alive by creating your own stories.

We would love for you to participate through your writing, design – or both. Our hope is to encourage new friendships and collaborations along with an opportunity to hone and showcase your immense talents.
