Hey, remember that Six-Word Memoir Contest we had a ways back?
It took us a while to comb through a whopping 2,356 entries, winnow those down to a handful of finalists, then get the final word back from the esteemed panel of judges from HarperCollins.
Finally, we have our winners:
Laughed all the way... bank's closed.
Turned lemons into lemonade. Added vodka.
After cancer, I became a semi-colon.
I gave her the wrong flowers.
(Todd Austin Hunt)
Wanted love. Got lust. I'm screwed.
These six-word memoirs will appear in the next edition of the series, due this fall from HarperCollins.
Congratulations to our fantastic winners! And thanks to everyone who entered — there were so many good ones, it was a daunting task to pick only a few.
