A Johnny Marr Fanzine
DYNAMIC is the first and only publication dedicated entirely to Johnny Marr and his fandom, released digitally every 3-4 months.

Each lengthy issue features high quality articles covering various facets of Johnny's work and personality, live reviews, photography (including exclusive and previously unseen images), fan art and even interviews. In addition to working with Johnny himself, we've worked with many professional photographers, and talented writers both professional and hobbyist.


As well as the digital edition that is freely available online, we also produce a special one-off print edition of each issue for Johnny, as a special memento.

Get Involved
If you have something in mind for a potential article/feature, or even if you just know you want to write and are eager to brainstorm with us, please send us an e-mail at admin@johnnymarrvellous.com so that we can chat about your ideas.

For ideas as to what sort of pieces we're looking for, the contents of our existing issues should steer you in the right direction. If you're able to send us a sample of your written work (eg. previously written articles, blogs, etc.) with your e-mail, that would be very helpful.

While we appreciate your enthusiasm, please do not send in fully-written articles before talking to us about your idea. We would hate for you to go to all that trouble and then not be able to use your piece for one reason or another.

Many thanks in advance, and stay tuned for further updates!
