Six Word Stories: Now on Facebook

2/6/2014

We’ve been posting stories on Twitter for over five years, but now we have a presence on that other social networking site.

Yes, Six Word Stories now has a Facebook Page.

Here, we will be posting all of the new Six Word Stories submissions that appear on the main site, along with stories from our archive of nearly 2000 stories. Several stories will be posted per day, so it is actually going to be a whole lot more active than Twitter (at least for a year or so).

Be sure to like Six Word Stories, and share us with all your friends!

Awoken from hibernation. Stories to tell.

3/27/2012

A year ago, Six Word Stories went into hibernation.

We’re sorry about that.

We will resume posting new stories every day, starting today. Thank you to the fans who encouraged us to come back.

If you have a six word story, share it with us. Keep the submissions coming – Six Word Stories wouldn’t exist without you!

Six Word Stories reaches 500 stories!

6/10/2009

A little over six months ago, I launched Six Word Stories, thinking it would be a nifty exercise for creative writers, and a fun type of content to distribute over Twitter. I never expected this little site to become so successful!

We just published our 500th story, and we’ve received nearly 5,000 story submissions from readers. We also have over 1500 followers on Twitter.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed and read our stories. Be sure to try writing a six word story of your own — it’s fun, and the best ones will be published on the front page! And be sure to share this site with your friends!

Stories told in just six words.

12/28/2008

Brevity is a virtue.

This is a collection of short short stories consisting of just six words. It was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s famous challenge. It will include stories by notable writers, reader submissions, myself, friends, and the Internet at large.

Launched by Pete Berg in December, 2008.
