Great Writers Inspire: Learning from the Past

Please help us improve with this one minute survey (opens in a new tab)

This collection of freely available literary resources is aimed at students from sixth-form to university, their teachers, and at lifelong learners. It contains lectures, eBooks and contextual essays for reuse by individuals and the educational community. Resources could be included in course packs, browsed for extended project work or in preparation for university study, or set as additional reading around specific central texts. There are thousands of individual items as well as curated thematic and historical collections to help students research and interrogate their literary ideas.

In 2017 the Postcolonial Writers Make Worlds website launched as a next generation expansion of Great Writers Inspire with a set of free resources on reading contemporary Black and Asian British writing.
