Welcome to an E-Zine that reads and considers all submissions!

We have no preference for any ‘genre’ (kind, category or sort of writing)

so don’t hesitate to submit your writing. The main stipulation is that

all work must be previously unpublished. However, we assume

only first international publication rights.


While I am discussing Big Pond Rumours, don’t forget to check out the activities

of our micro press. In addition to previous works, we have selected

four titles from our recent contest to be published as chapbooks in 2017.
