Six Word Memoirs

Brevity is the soul of wit. William Shakespeare

Tell us your pandemic story in six words. We want to preserve Beverly’s collective experience of 2020, a most unusual year. Add to Beverly’s pandemic stories by submitting yours. We will submit your entries to the Six-Word Memoirs website and add them to our local history collection.

Submit your entries by Monday, November 30.

Check out some of these staff examples:

Jerusha holds a sign reading "Bad kitty! Stop it! Stop! Stop" Joe holds a sign reading "Adapt, modify balance, alter, adjust patience."

Themes include horror, rom-coms, classic holiday films, Marvel’s Avengers, Black experiences, mysteries, LGBTQ+, 80’s movies, and more!
