"Writing is easy. Life is hard."—Neil LaBute

Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser—editors of the New York Times bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning are back with its much-anticipated sequel, It All Changed in an Instant.

With contributions from acclaimed authors like Malcolm Gladwell, Frank McCourt,
Wally Lamb, Isabel Allende, Junot Diaz, Amy Tan, and James Frey, and celebrities like Sarah Silverman, Suze Orman, Marlee Matlin, Neil Patrick Harris, Ann Coulter, and Chelsea Handler, It All Changed in an Instant presents a thousand more glimpses of humanity—and the chance for your students to discover the writer within themselves.

Teachers from kindergarten to graduate school have found the six-word memoir to be an inspiring writing exercise for their students. These examples will not only inspire your students to write their own six-word memoirs—but will help them find their voices and spur them to write longer pieces.

And, our
instructor's guide will give you more ways to incorporate It All Changed in an Instant into your class.

If you'd like to adopt the book for your class, please request a
desk copy!

here's a bit of inspiration!
