Taking Submissions: Colp: Underground

January 17, 2021

Deadline: January 17th 2021
Payment: AU$5.00 for stories under 2500 words / AU$10.00 for anything above 2500 words
Theme: Underground

Colp is our ‘anything goes’ genre-free anthology collection.

Expect to see a little bit of this and a little bit of that.


Current theme:


Beneath the earth, beneath all the hustle and bustle of the big city, there are endless possibilities. Stories waiting to be told about mysterious creatures or forgotten cultures. Tunnels that shouldn’t be followed and doors that should probably remain shut.

For this collection, we would like stories in which a large proportion of the narrative takes place under the ground.

Colp is for everyone and therefore we are willing to read stories that fall into any genre. So, no matter whether your story is a horror, adventure, romance, sci-fi or historical fiction piece, please send it on through. Be original. We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.

Please ensure that you read through the general guidelines and format your submission accordingly. If you have any specific questions please contact us using the form on the home page or via the listed social media accounts.

To help make sure that your submission gets to the correct place, please include the following in the subject line of your email: Colp – Underground – Story Title.
