Are you interested in ideas about how the economy can work better for you?
Do you want to improve your creative writing skills?
Do you want to get your writing published?

Arkbound is offering a free workshop series led by experts in creative writing and alternative economics, with the chance to have your work published in an anthology based on the workshops’ themes.

Who is eligible: Anyone from an underrepresented or disadvantaged background (e.g. unemployed, low income, long term carers, disabled, experiencing some form of social exclusion) with a passion for writing and a keen interest in social issues.

All selected contributions to the book will receive an advance royalty of £300, in addition to a share of sales royalties after publication. For any other published material arising from your participation in all the workshops (blog, podcast, video, article), we also award prizes of £50 each.
