The Converse website aims to broaden and
deepen the experience of literature for 11-19 year olds, and to
encourage students with little previous contact with higher education
to think about studying literature at university.

By providing an innovative, stimulating and fun environment in
which to pursue curriculum-related activities, we hope to encourage
students to explore the site independently, to encounter new literature
and ways of thinking, and to discover new talents and potentials
within themselves.

These resources have been designed, written and tested by pupils
and teachers from schools across Britain, particularly from Excellence
in Cities and Excellence Action Zone schools. Students and lecturers
from Cambridge University’s Faculty of English have contributed
their expertise through essays and resources.
