Interested in Advertising with us?

Converse is published by PRISONS ORG UK – the premier publisher of prison publications in England and Wales – a position we’ve occupied for well over 20 years – you can rely on us to deliver the business results you advertise to obtain.

We don’t just publish the national monthly prisoners newspaper with the highest national monthly distribution, we also publish The Prisons Handbook – the definitive 1,600+page annual guide to the penal system of England and Wales – and The Cell Companion – everyone’s definitive 256 page guide to serving and surviving a prison sentence.

In addition we own and operate The Institute of Prison Law, which for over a decade has been accredited by the Law Society and the Bar Standards Board.

In short, when it comes to ‘prisons’ we’re first… and we’re second to none!
