So we’re always excited when six words finds a way into the public radio world. Our friends over at NPR’s EconomyStory.org cover the world of money and finance from a point of view that’s always connected to personal stories, helping this ever-complicated topic connect to the real world. Editors there have had a six fix lately, asking for Six-Word Memoirs about how to cope in the current climate. They recently asked for “Six Words on Career in Crisis,” and received responses ranging from the despondent (”On food stamps, Americorps, Future M.D.”), ironic (”Career long in tooth, got yanked.”) and optimistic (”Lost two jobs gained an LLC.”).
SMITH joins Economystory.org in a new challenge: What’s your Six-Word Memoir on the financial crisis? Feel free to leave your six words in the comments area below, or head on over the EconomyStory. We’ll give a copy of our latest book, It All Changed in An Instant: More Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure.
