Welcome to Arkbound

We are a charity book publisher based in Bristol and Glasgow. Our aim is to support authors from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds to get their voices heard, especially for writing that covers important social and environmental themes. The Arkbound Foundation furthers this through workshops, events and mentoring. Since 2015, we have published a range of books in fiction and non-fiction, with a list of available books here. New book submissions are welcomed, although we usually focus on authors who have been supported through the Arkbound Foundation.

Featured Author

John McGlade is a freelance writer from Glasgow. Inspired by the comedy of The Young Ones, the Marx Brothers, and Spike Milligan, he began his writing career by stealing school jotters, filling them up, and passing them round the playground. He’s since gone on to write for television and radio, scripting many satirical and comedy shows, and his work has been nominated for a BBC Audio Drama Award

His debut novella ‘Invisible Schemes’ (published on 15th August 2022) brings the housing schemes of Glasgow to the forefront in  a passionate commentary on the inherent hope and power of small communities.
