’Went to shops. Won lottery. Sorted.’
This is the winning entry of our annual Six-Word Story Competition by Jordan Joseph Wildman at Quintin Kynaston. We were thrilled to receive dozens of witty, thoughtful, wicked, and poetic entries.
William Fiennes, our judge, said of the winning entry, ‘There’s something formally so satisfying about the three sentences: three words, two words, one word…’
The two runners up were Ivanilza da Mata (Kissed me. Kissed another. Pulled trigger.) and Chloe Collins (Did the right thing. Was wrong.).
Thank you to everyone who entered, and for keeping us amused with so many snappily-penned lines.
