GalleyCat Readers Share Love & Heartbreak Stories

Looking for a romantic night? We’ll be at Smith Magazine‘s Six-Word Memoir Story Love & Heartbreak Slam tonight, watching GalleyCat readers share six-word memoirs. Below, we’ve listed a few of the many submissions we received.

The reading features a group of talented writers sharing the backstory to their six-word memoirs. So far, readers include: Deb Kogan, Rachel Sklar, Baratunde Thurston, Darin Strauss, Michele Carlo, Sara Barron, and Elizabeth Wurtzel.

You can buy tickets to the reading here. Here’s more about the interactive event: “Everyone will have the chance to share a Six-Word Memoir during the audience participation Six-World Slam. Then we invite you to hang out by the 92YTribeca’s beautiful bar and share more stories and drinks.”

Rita Meade: “Four words: never date a writer.”

Roy Anthony Shabla: “the moon, the moon, the moon.”

Piper Kerman: “Found fellow cliffdiver; best risk ever.”

Kelly Kreth: “Loser at love, winner at Scrabble.”

Laura Relyea: “It’s not you, it’s the moustache.”
