The Six Word Memoir Contest

Congratulations to the winners of this week’s writing contest! They are listed below.

But first, a bit about our contest series.

Every week we are going to have a contest on our Facebook Page. The contests will change from week to week but the winners will always be published in the magazine. The contest winner and the runners up are chosen by a voting system, and then the editors of Authors Publish will select several additional entries from the rest to be the Editor’s Choice winners.

Below are all the winners of this week’s contest, their challenge was to tell us, in 50 words or less, why they write. Lots of people gave thoughtful answers and it was hard to pick the Editor’s Choice.

To see the winners just scroll down. To read the details of the next contest please scroll down to the bottom of the page.
