Pop Up Projects CIC

Pop Up Projects (est 2011) is a non-profit social enterprise with a mission to transform lives through literature and publishing. Through our work we aim to:

  1. Provide literary experiences and publishing opportunities for writers and illustrators of all ages, including children and young people;
  2. Engage and inspire, nurture and invest in writers and illustrators from under-represented and excluded backgrounds;
  3. Contribute to a more inclusive canon of children’s books, so that more young readers can find themselves and discover others in the books they read.

To find out more about our work, please visit our website www.pop-up.org.uk (please note our website is currently being redeveloped and the new site will launch early July). 

As of August 2022 we have a team of eight full-time and two part-time staff who are organised into four teams: Finance & Operations; Marketing & Sales; Pathways; Projects (including publishing). Although our office is in London (N1) we have embraced hybrid working and staff work two days in the office and three days at home per week. We are governed by a Board of Non-Executive Directors who volunteer their time to offer strategic support and ensure accountability. We take a business-minded approach to achieving our charitable mission; this greatly informs our ethos, making us enterprising and ambitious.
