Capture Your Wilmette Institute Experience in a Six-Word Essay

As part of its Twentieth Anniversary celebrations, the Wilmette Institute is inviting learners in its Spiritual Foundations for a Global Civilization program and/or its online courses to capture their experiences with the Wilmette Institute, or their understanding of it, in the briefest possible of essays.

“Essays of six well-chosen words.”

Six-word descriptions have become something of a phenomenon of late. National Public Radio has been sponsoring “six-words-on-race” essays, with feature stories about their authors. Smith online magazine has a “Say it in 6” at http://www.sixwordmemoirs.com/. They run contests, create projects for schools, ask people to summarize a classic novel in six words, create six-word videos, and design six-word pictures.

What can you say about the Wilmette Institute in its “Essays-of-Six-Well-Chosen-Words” challenge, the topic being a description of your experience with the Wilmette Institute’s Spiritual Foundations program or its online courses? Send your essay or essays to wi@usbnc.org. We will tweet them on Twitter, post them on Facebook, put them up on our new website, http://wilmetteinstitute.org, and write about them in our eNewsletter.

For you, choosing six words will be addictive. For us, your six-word essays will be fun to read. We promise they will be fastest you have ever written. It took us about a minute to come up a name for the challenge.
