You are tasked with writing an “alternate” ending. For example, imagine how your chosen book characters/settings/circumstances might have been impacted by our present day, real-world pandemic, or choose a different theme entirely and let your imagination run wild!


Entries will be judged by a qualified team of Digitally Lit consultants and the respective book author. Entries must be original content, no less than 500 words and no more than 2000.


There are ten excerpts from ten separate books available from which you can imagine and craft the unfolding of your own original tale. Click below to read an excerpt and better learn the style and tone created by the original author.


KINDLY NOTE: Digitally Lit has extended our context deadline to noon, Wednesday, May 27, 2020, to accommodate educators and their students.
