    I like the verse from an ancient scripture idea. I am just not one for poetry.

    I agree, it would be fun to adapt a song or poem or a verse from an old book of ancient scripture (not necessarily just the Bible).
    Look at what Stephen King did with a Robert Browning poem.

    Here's just the last bit.

    There they stood, ranged along the hill-sides, met
    To view the last of me, a living frame
    For one more picture! in a sheet of flame
    I saw them and I knew them all. And yet
    Dauntless the slug-horn to my lips I set,
    And blew. "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came."

    I think any public domain material would work. If someone wanted to do it from a verse, fine...from a short story, fine...from a novel, good luck...

    I think that will be needed since narrowing it down to one thing like a poem seems, well, kinda too narrow.

    Speaking of Stephen King, how about his dollar babies? I wonder if those would be kosher for a script fest?

    A writer could potentially adapt a historical event too. It would require doing their own research from one or more sources, but would be another good way to go for something along the lines of ADAPT-A-FEST.

    As for novels, if they are in the public domain or if the author can obtain the rights, then they're good -- http://www.authorama.com/
