The Arkbound Foundation is based upon widening accessibility and diversity within the publishing and media industries. We believe that everyone should be able to participate in the opportunities that both industries offer, regardless of their background or personal circumstances. This could be by way of publishing books, or becoming a journalist. Our three core areas of activity are writing workshops, book publishing and mentoring.

Our Vision

To make literature accessible to all and to provide opportunities to disadvantaged people in journalism and publishing.

Our Values

Open, inclusive, democratic, ethical, creative, cooperative and inspirational.

Our Mission

To open up the world of literature, journalism and publishing to everyone through delivering mentoring, workshops, events and sponsorship. We believe that empowering people through writing is a way towards building a stronger, fairer and more enlightened society.
