The Arkbound Foundation is a charity that aims to widen access to literature and improve diversity within the publishing industry. We run projects that empower people from disadvantaged backgrounds to enter the publishing and media industry, and develop their writing to publishing standards. We also help sponsor and mentor authors so that they can produce books that are widely read and which dispel negative stereotypes.
Based in Glasgow and Bristol, the Arkbound Foundation principally works with people who have experienced social exclusion, including those who have faced discrimination by virtue of their background, circumstance or personal characteristics. Our ethos is about empowerment, positive transformation and accessibility.
