  • About the Arkbound Foundation

    Empowering people through writing


The Arkbound Foundation is a charity that aims to widen access to literature and improve diversity within publishing.

We run projects that empower people from disadvantaged backgrounds and deprived communities to get their voices heard, supporting books with important social and environmental themes. We mentor aspiring authors so that they can produce books that are widely read and which dispel negative stereotypes, whilst seeking to build resilience for the most excluded communities through the power of literature and journalism.

Based in Glasgow and Bristol, our founding ethos is about empowerment, positive transformation and accessibility. Please browse through our website to find out more.

We are the UK's only independent charity concerned with improving accessibility and diversity within literature and journalism. We welcome donations and sponsors, as well as new volunteers.
