6 Word Stories reflecting on The Story Conference 2019

The six word story was supposedly made famous by Ernest Hemmingway with “For sale, baby shoes, never worn” … it also forms a great way to quickly and effectively invite people to reflect on a topic or area of inquiry.. as has been described in Activity 87 – 6-word-memoirs contributed by Russel Deal in The Story Cookbook.

What follows below are a collection of 6 word stories conference participants shared when asked to reflect on the Story Conference 2019 held November 27-29th:
