What is BOUND?

Bound helps storytellers and brands tell their stories in creative and effective ways.

We are storytelling experts:
We are India’s top editors. We provide writers and artists with infrastructure, training and mentorship required to produce creative content.

We are podcasters: 
Our homegrown podcasts are bestsellers. We produce podcasts for individuals and brands.

We have a community of 25,000+ creative people and avid listeners.

At BOUND, we give you the freedom to explore your interests and talents and take them to new heights. But it’s not just about a single experience – BOUND is about finding your creative family. We are bent on creating the next generation of artists, writers and entrepreneurs, and giving them a home in which they can hone their skills and find a family of kindred spirits.

As an alternative education company that aims to encourage everyone to explore their inner creativity, we celebrate storytelling and believe in the power of immersive experiences. We plan week-long retreats in the most beautiful locations, where you can focus on your writing, and create long-lasting bonds with others in your community. We also conduct in-city workshops and discussions to ensure that you have the best advice and audience for your work. It is our hope that our participants grow and eventually return to become teachers at BOUND.

BOUND also curates and hosts bespoke literary events. Whether it’s planning a cultural festival, book launch or a one-day curated gathering, we will help you curate, design and market your event.

Let BOUND help you make your creative dreams a reality.
