Colp: Big

Posted by Randi on Monday, January 28, 2019

What they want:
Think big. For this Colp collection we are seeking stories that feature at least one significantly-sized character or component. Your story must include at least one of the following:

  • a character (main or otherwise) that is physically enormous (tall, wide, both) - think the size of a skyscraper as your starting point
  • an environmental feature or man-made structure that is equally enormous giant objects
Go as big as you can, and think outside the box. Please avoid any stories that are retakes on Jack and the Beanstalk, Pacific Rim, Godzilla, King Kong or any other classical/modern story or film.

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 (we'd really love someone to send through a romance, just once...) Be original. We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.
