About Six Words

Let's get to know each other

What’s in the name?

Our name, Six Words Communication Corp., was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s self-imposed challenge to write a six word story. According to literary legend, after betting friends he could write a novel in just six words, Hemingway penned:

 

For sale: baby shoes, never worn.

 

In six short words, Hemingway was able to highlight the impact of clear, concise communication.

 

Everything we do at Six Words strives to capture the power of thoughtful, crisp communication. By being direct, clear and creative, we’re able to help you connect with your audiences and reach your goals.

 

From change management communication, to content strategies, to social media marketing – we apply this philosophy and approach to all areas of our work.

 

Our commitment to clear communication also comes to life in how we work with you. To kick things off, we will take the time to sit down with you and understand your unique needs and vision. Once things get moving, we’ll also provide proactive updates about how things are going so you’re never left wondering what’s happening.
