Winners announced in the UMass Boston "6 Word Story Contest", inspired by Ernest Hemingway's “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

““[The contest] seemed fun and interesting,” he said before the event started. “I worked on it for hours…it took up a good portion of my day.”

Josh Weiss (pictured at left), a junior Psychology major, was chosen as the other runner-up. His story: “Twelve boys entered, nine soldiers left.” He said he was surprised that his entry won.”

Over 200 entries were received. Some of the better ones at the end of the linked story. (OK, one more for non-clickers, a runner-up: “Seeds don’t take in her garden.”)
