“At its core, the six-word memoir teaches us to be concise but also introspective. Try describing yourself in six words. Not easy, right? So, for English teachers, the six-word memoir is a great way to get students to focus on getting a point across in as few words as possible. Students have to choose words precisely since they can’t waste any. The six-word memoir teaches all of us writers a critical skill: words are valuable and have meaning — don’t waste them.” — Jonathan Olsen
