The unthinkable has happened...

A wave of contamination so epic, it has almost eliminated the entire human race. Will the survivors manage to build up resistance or will too many become infected, changing the world forever...?

Survival Sagas challenges your students to write a mini saga, a story in 100 words, to tell us their version of events. Enclosed are 8 contamination-themed story starters that students can use to start or inspire their work or they can simply interpret the theme as they wish to as we love to encourage creativity and originality!

Survival Sagas: Mission Contamination is sure to take your students to perilous places and help them create thrilling, death-defying fiction…


Here's what teachers thought to the Survival Sagas - Mission Catastrophe contest…
