We want your input. This is a fanzine and contributions from fans is our lifeblood. We are looking for fan art, fan photos, stories, essays, interviews, encounters, reviews, opinion pieces or anything else.
Please read the guidelines before submitting.
First, and most importantly, these are just guidelines. Please don’t let them put you off submitting. Also, don’t let them put you off writing the artice you want to write or writing as long an article as you want to write. Be like Bowie – break all the rules. But you have to know the rules to break them.
Written contributions should be submitted on a Word (or equivalent) document. Please avoid PDFs – they play havoc with the formatting of the magazine. Photos should be in an image format such as jpeg, TIFF, .png or whatever. Please don’t send them in PDF format or within the Word document.
There is no limit. We can fit up to about 500-700 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. Note that this isn’t a word limit, just a heads-up. If you’ve got a 5,000 word article, go ahead and send it in!
What not to Write
Lots of articles that we receive use similar phrases such as: ‘the rest is history’, ‘fast forward five years’, ‘more of that later’, ‘thank you, David’ – make yours stand out by being original!
We get quite a few similar pieces (for example , articles about ‘What Bowie Meant to Me’ and ‘Something Happened on the Day He Died’). Articles with an original slant or idea are more likely to make it (but don’t let this put you off!).
If you’ve got photos or fan art, please send them in!
In written pieces, please place song titles in single inverted commas and album titles in italics. This is really appreciated as it takes ages to add or remove them. Here’s an example:
‘Panic in Detroit’ (song title in single inverted commas);
Earthling (album title in italics).
Titles of books should be in italics.
Is Your Writing Good Enough?
Yes, it is! 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 piece to us!
We reserve the right to edit submissions for reasons of space, house style and grammar.
Credits and Attribution
We always try to credit the work that is sent to us correctly. Some artists and writers use names other than their given name for their work. When you submit, please let us know how you’d like to be credited. If there is no information to the contrary, we will use the name on the email.
