Welcome to the home of David Bowie: Glamour – the fanzine.

Our current issue is available here!

This is a fanzine by the fans, for the fans. You make it what it is, so if you have an article in you, please write it down and send it in. Thank you everyone for your support.

Submission guidelines:

What we are looking for: Fan art, stories, encounters, reviews, opinion pieces or anything else.

  • Pieces with illustrations (not from Google Images) have a greater chance of acceptance.
  • We can fit up to about 700 words on a single page. It’s worth bearing that in mind when you submit. If you submit a 700-word article, it’ll fit on a page. If you send a 1400-word article, it’s two. Space is always at a premium, so we can print more one-page articles than two-page ones.
  • Don’t say, ‘the rest is history’ or ‘fast forward five years’!!
  • In written pieces, please place song titles in single inverted commas and album titles in italics, like this:

‘Panic in Detroit’ (song title in single inverted commas); 

Earthling (album title in italics).

Some people have said they worry their writing might not be up to par. Don’t worry! It is! The story’s the thing. We can work with you to edit if needed – but send your idea to us!

For submissions, please email davidbowieglamour@yahoo.com.

  1. Hi can’t find the link for issue 2.
    I was in Australia for issue 1 but still managed to order and receive a cop. Brilliant to read. Can you email me the link.x

      1. Hi David. Thanks for asking. PayPal is currently the only method. There is one other possibility: if you click on the buy button on the site it gives the option to pay by card. It’s worth a try. Some people have been able to; others say it defaults back to PayPal.

        Best wishes

  2. Andy, was good to meet you briefly last night at the holy holy gig at hull city hall. you mentioned that you may run a re-print on issue #1 at some point, i dont do facebook or twitter and wondered if you could email me if the re-print happens. i’ve just pre-ordered #2 but would love to have the entire collection starting with the first one !

    1. Hi Pete. It’s Nick here, Andy’s partner in crime. I was at the first gig in Hull. I hear the second was even better than the first!

      Thanks for your interest in any reprint of issue 1 that we do. I’ll try to remember to send that email but I think I’d better not promise as I don’t know how far in the future it may be. I’d suggest keeping an eye on this website as well.

  3. Hello guys! I discovered the existance of this Fan Zine today. I’m completely enamoured by the beauty and hard work invested in this project. I’m a girl from the island of Puerto Rico whose life, just like millions, was changed by Bowie. I pre-ordered issue #2 but I was wondering if there is any chance of getting issue #1? Would there be any re-issues? Also, when is the deadline for submiting artwork for issue 2? Thanks so much! 💜

      1. Hello, might there be any chance to be included in Issue 3 if a submission is not included in Issue 2? Would you contact authors if included?
        Thank you so much for your delightful “crime” 🙂

  4. When you say you want stories, just looking for a little clarification: fiction? as in fanfiction? Or more like personal stories.

  6. Hi, a bit of a late-comer but is there any way to purchase both issue 1 and issue 2 at the same time or do I have to purchase separately?

  7. for submissions for issue 3, is there any sort of age limit? of course you know, bowie fans are of all walks of life, and im a rather young teen. i’d still love to submit my artwork though, with parents permission obviously. i’d also like to know to if a writing piece is required with art? my focus is traditional drawings and paintings, but i could also send in a poem i wrote for mr. bowie a while back.

    1. Hi. Thanks for your message. There is no age limit for submissions and we’d be very pleased to receive your work. We receive lots of art without writing so that’s fine but we’d be happy to read your poetry too.

  8. I’m a 22 year old Australian and although with my shitty job that I work to get by while I complete my Masters is not quite substantial enough for me to be an avid collector, I was happy to spend my self-regulated weekly ‘Bowie Allowance’ on the first edition of Glamour with only a slight grimace at the cost plus postage to Oz haha. Will be saving up to continue buying further editions! Love having the solid magazine in my hands and squealed with delight upon finding the poster included. Keen to send in submissions for future editions too! Keep up the great work! Bowie Forever.

    1. Hi Barry.

      Thank you for your message and kind comment!

      I’m afraid there isn’t a way to order in one go and save the postage. We can’t fit two fanzines plus posters into one envelope without damaging the items.

      Hope you like the fanzine. Let me k ow what you think.

      Best wishes
