Arkbound has an expanding network of magazine publications across the world. Many of these were started by people who are part of the Publishing Network, others were sponsored by the Arkbound Foundation Regional Editor Project.
Vocalise is a true community-orientated hyperlocal publication, which serves the area of Ashley Ward in Bristol. Founded by a group of local residents, Vocalise has managed to secure substantial grant funding and is working towards a model of sustainability based upon memberships, advertising and events.
Each edition of Vocalise includes information on upcoming events; articles by local people; artwork by children and adults; updates from local services, councillors and the police; together with an assortment of other content – from tasty recipes to photography competitions.
After support from Arkbound, Vocalise is now managed by a separate Community Interest Company. If you would like to find out more about Vocalise, visit www.vocalisemagazine.org.uk
What is homelessness? Is it simply not having somewhere to live, or something far deeper and multi-faceted? Streetlife explores this question, drawing upon the accounts of people who have experienced homelessness – both past and present. Through artwork, poetry and insightful articles it reveals the daily stigma, discrimination and abuse that homeless people face.
Published by Jos Young, who experienced 7 years of homelessness in London, Streetlife has been supported by charity Crisis. A small initial print run was also sponsored by Arkbound. To find out more, visit: http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/crisis-skylight-london.html

The 2010 Greek economic crisis continues to ripple through Europe, and today questions remain as to how the Greek debt can be paid off. However, Greek people have defied the trend towards centre-right or right-wing parties and elected a left-wing, Socialist Government. Other countries, such as the UK, have done the opposite: faced with threats to ‘the economy’, the public turn to parties that promise to prioritise money above people (usually those that are right-wing).
Rebel Runner casts a critical spotlight on capitalism and aims to find hope in the Greek political spirit for other nations to follow. It borrows upon the award-winning techniques and insights of Athens Live. Run from the same office as an Arkbound branch, Rebel Runner also offers opportunities for people in Eastern Europe to join the Publishing Network.
