Contest: Six-Word Resolutions

Monday, December 27th, 2010

By Larry Smith

Six-Word Resolutions are back. Tell us your plans, hopes, dreams, motivations, and mistakes you hope not to repeat in 2011 in just six words. We’ll give three of our favorite six-word scribes a T-shirt from our partner, Spreadshirt, so you can wear your resolutions proudly throughout the year (or at least until you break them). Share yours on the Six-Word Memoir project by January 6 (National Smith Day—and SMITH Magazine’s fifth-year anniversary, by the way)

Plus—last chance! In six words, what happened in 2010?
SMITH senior editor, Rachel Fershleiser, and I will be on WNYC’s The Leonard Lopate Show on December 29 at 12pm, talking about your six words to sum up 2010. There’s still a little time to submit yours at and be invited to talk six with us live on the show. (Note: you don’t need to be in New York as we’ll be chatting with folks by phone.)
