Announcing a new six-word contest from SMITH! In honor of our newest book and the new year, we're launching a monthly challenge with a chance to win "Things Don't Have to be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World," an e-book with TED Books, or "I Can't Keep My Own Secrets," the first book from SMITHTeens.

For January, we're asking for your six-word resolutions. What do you hope to accomplish in the year ahead? Whether it be in school, at home, or even on SMITHTeens, we want to know. Share in comments by January 31 and we'll announce the winners here and on the forums.

Contact me at meredith @ smithmag.net with questions!
