Send in Your Six Word Wonders Contest!
Express your thoughts or feelings about Strathmere in just 6 words and win a prize during this fun and challenging Schiavo Library Contest!
It is said that Ernest Hemmingway was challenged to write a story in 6 words and he responded with "For sale: baby shoes, never worn"
Whether this is a literary folktale or a true story, the challenge of expressing thoughts and or emotions in just six words has inspired professionals and amateurs around the globe to craft pithy sayings about any number of topics. There's at least one book on the subject - 'Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs' (we have a copy of the book at the Library)

Now it's your turn! Create a six-word 'story' about Strathmere and submit it or several entries - to the Schiavo Library between now and August 29th in order to enter the contest. The winner or winners, will be announced Labor Day weekend and will receive a Schiavo Library Tote Bag, numerous accolades and fame on the official Schiavo Library webpage!

Include your name, contact info, and Schiavo Library card number. All work must be original.

Contact Carol Bruno by phone (486-6265) or email - - to register or for more details.
