Six Words for the Planet with the EPA

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

By Larry Smith

“Never too old to climb trees.”
“Many nations. One planet. Our home.”
“Backyard nesting frenzy. Better than YouTube.”
“She is stronger, outliving us all.”

In celebration of Earth Day 2012, on April 22, SMITH is teaming up with the Environmental Protection Agency to bring you Six Words for the Planet. What six words would you use to describe our planet Earth—your relationship to it, what “green” means to you and where you see its beauty and its beasts? Share your Six Words for the Planet, and you could be featured on the EPA’s website and will be considered for a future Six-Word book.
(Note: please leave your six-worders over on the Six-Word Memoir project, not in comments here.)

    Is there a limit to the # of six-word memoirs we can enter under Planet? Also, are other six-word memoirs under Planet that were written prior to this contest eligible?

    No limit to memoirs (over at http://www.smithmag.net/planet) and memoirs written in the “Green” section are also eligible.
