Six Word Story Challenge – Poverty

Are you up to a challenge? A challenge where you will need your imagination, a photo and a lot of only six words?

During the next two weeks I am searching for stories about POVERTY. In only six words! Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

SixWordStory

Such a strong story and unseen images in only six words…

Every two weeks on Wednesday I will post a new theme for this Six Word Story Challenge. Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.

Will you join me? Will you? Say you do 😀 And share the challenge news!

Have fun writing,
Marion

The next challenge will be posted on Wednesday, March 13.

I absolutely adore this photo, which was sent to me by a friend. These dancers are strong, expressive and caring. A lifetime of stories…
