    • You should take a story that is not set in the 21st century and bring it into the 21st century (or into the future.)

    • Hey Jamie-

      There are lots of books that are considered classics but this list is a good place to start. You can update it by writing it as if it took place today!

  1. Does the book “Peter and Wendy” count as a classic? Also:
    When you say ‘update’, do you mean write a comepletely new story with the basic plot of the book (such as Westside Story to Romeo and Juliet) or change the book to our liking?

  2. So it’s supposed to be a classic rewritten to be more modern, or do you write a following piece to continue the book?

  3. Can a specific scene in a classic story be updated, example, the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet? If it is kept for the word limit, is it okay?
