Publish Your Mini-memoir Here

Mini-memoirs have been around since cave dwellers drew on walls. In today’s world, SMITH Magazine was founded in 2006 to celebrate storytelling of all forms and claims credit for introducing the six-word memoir.

A mini-memoir also could be called flash memoir. No length is standard, or even generally accepted. Lengths vary from fewer than 100 words to no more than 1,000. Six Minute Magazine seeks memoirs that can be read in under six minutes. Howard Jacobson's The Swag Man is thirty-one pages, Alexandra Fuller’s Falling is
ninety-five pages, and Sharon Lippincott’s Adventures of a Chilehead is 158 pages.
