A Six Word Wonder is a story, poem, memoir, or joke, written in only six words.  Every story is unique, each one intended to entertain, amuse, or surprise, and is a great way for readers to take a break from their busy everyday lives.  The Six Word Wonder contest is an annual celebration of the best six word stories from around the world, with winners and shortlist being included in the new book, Six Word Stories by Doug Weller.
