Virtual: CCL Teens: Six-Word Memoir Contest

Thursday, April 1, 2021 - 8:00am to Friday, April 30, 2021 - 8:00am

During the month of April, Chester County Library is running a Six-Word Memoir Contest for teens in Grades 6-12.  The topic: Life during COVID-19.

"Six-Word Memoirs" are a personal twist on the writing form that, according to literary lore, Ernest Hemingway started when he was challenged to write a whole novel in just six words: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." Teens should email their Six-Word Memoirs to LURBANI@CCLS.ORG. Please include the following in your email: Your name, grade, school, and your Six-Word Memoir. 

The contest runs April 1-30, 2021.

Prizes will be awarded for each grade. Winners will be notified on Monday, May 3, and will have their work published on Chester County Library's Facebook page and Instagram page.
