Good news! Those of you who did not get a chance to send us your six word green memoir can breath a little easier. We have extended the contest deadline to next Monday, February 25th to make sure we get everyone's memoir. In conjunction with SMITH Magazine, whose new book, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs from Writers Famous and Obscure. started the six-word memoir craze, we are looking for stories that are funny, sad, triumphant - and everything in between.
So, get on over to our contest page by next Monday, February 25th to tell us your green journey in six words. More contest details, including prizes and rules after the jump. The person with the most compelling six-word memoir among all sites participating (including TreeHugger's green edition of the contest) will win an iPod nano with the winning six words engraved on it. The best green memoir will come away with a Planet Earth DVD set courtesy of TreeHugger's parent company Discovery, and the 5 runners-up for best green memoir will win a copy of SMITH's new book, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs from Writers Famous and Obscure.
