December Writing Contest Entries: 6 Word Memoirs


Many thanks to the students who submitted to our first writing contest! Below are all the submissions we received, reflecting so many different experiences from the year that has past. Sometimes light or ironic, sometimes dark and deeply personal, these entries reflect the complexities that we all have experienced in the past year.

Congratulations to all our entrants, our finalists, and, of course, our winner, as chosen by the CP Staff: Gabriella Pfefferle!

Deecmber’s Prompt: Write a six-word memoir (that’s a story about your life that is true) that reflects your 2020.
