So, what’s the one-word title of your memoir? Leave it in the comments here, with, optionally, a one-sentence explanation why (and, yes, your sentence can be more than six words). Erin McKean, founder of our favorite place for linguistic treats, Wordnik, will pick her favorite. The winning scribe gets a copy of one of the above books, or, if you don’t like those options, you can choose SMITH Mag’s most recent Six-Word Memoir book.
Contest ends on November 19 (5pm est). Enter as often as you like. On Twitter, tag it: #1wordmemoir.
