Submissions

Colp is our 'anything goes' anthology collection.

Expect to see a little bit of this and a little bit of that within each issue, so feel free to submit stories from any genre.

Current theme: Suplex

"Well let me tell you something, brother!"

Colp is looking to bodyslam your story into their next collection as they grapple with all things wrestling. We're looking for your wrestling-inspired tales - whether they be based in the professional wrestling world of Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, the college circuit or feature legendary luchadors. Increase your chances at selection by avoiding libellous comments about any current or past performers. 

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, 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 We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.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 below 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.
