Six-Word Stories

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but maybe six words paint a clearer picture.

Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s famous six-word story—“For sale: baby shoes, never worn”—we’ve challenged our FIGS Peer Instructors to create their own minimal masterpieces chronicling their experiences teaching a FIGS course. 

Whether you took a FIGS as a student or taught a FIGS as a peer instructor, if you have a story that you'd like to share – six words or otherwise – please get in touch with us
