I think the Six-Word Memoir is a great idea. I like it because even though it’s used with a younger group of writers, I can see it working for all ages and skill levels. It seems like it would be a great gateway into drafting for memoir, because it begins as a teaser for writers. It’s small scale, causes less anxiety in creating as a first assignment, and could very well be developed into something larger. It’s difficult to get writers, especially first year or returning student writers to want to write and this assignment gets the writer thinking like an author.
