Arkbound is a Bristol publisher that has social enterprise at its heart. The promotion of community development, social inclusion, sustainability and artistic talent forms an important part of our work.

Founded in early 2015, Arkbound enables people to publish and promote books, as well as become Regional Editors of their own magazines. Arkbound bridges the gap between contemporary and ‘vanity’ publishers by offering fully sponsored publication to disadvantaged authors, or alternatively a range of services and discounted packages to those who can afford to self-publish. We are affiliated with a number of organisations that share our vision of a more inclusive, democratically vibrant and sustainable society and donate 15% of profits directly to charitable initiatives.
