Last Mother’s Day, moms around the world shared six-word memoirs like “Mommy’s boobies no longer Daddy’s boobies,” “Suffered miscarriage. Daughter offered her doll,” and “Can I pee in private, please?”
This year, SMITH Mag is teaming up with truuconfessions and Postcard from Yo Momma for a new six-word challenge about all things Mom. Truuconfessions, which just released the book, True Mom Confessions: Real Moms Get Real, will choose the best six-word story about parenting; the editors of Postcards from Yo Momma, editors of Love, Mom: Poignant, Goofy, Brilliant Messages from Home, will award the prize for the best six-word story about your relationship with your own mother. Both winners will get signed copies of all those books and a six-word memoir book, plus artistic validation and Internet fame. Three runners-up will win one book of their choice. Contest ends May 10…Mother’s Day. Go to the Six-Word MOMoir project and enter (please don’t leave your six-worder in the comments section here; those sixers won’t be considered official submissions).
