The Reading Agency are delighted to team up with Yours Magazine to bring you two toolkits with stories and questions to start conversations. 

Reading Friends connects people by starting conversations through reading, giving opportunities to meet others, share stories, make new friends and have fun. We all know the benefits of conversation, and that’s why we’re delighted to be working with Yours Magazine to bring our Reading Friends projects even more stories to share, and opportunities to chat!  

The team at Yours Magazine have chosen their favourite mood-boosting short stories from their recent Yours Fiction Special magazines for the Feel-good fiction toolkit. These uplifting short stories will transport you from a magical garden to outer space, popping into a Beatles concert along the way and can’t help but make you smile!  

The Nostalgia toolkit features historical and retro short stories and some brilliant non-fiction nostalgia features from Yours and Yours Retro magazines. These stories will take you back in time to share memories of childhood parties, DIY projects and town discos.  

We can’t wait to hear the discussions these stories will lead to in Reading Friends sessions! Let us know at readingfriends@readingagency.org.uk  or get in touch if you’d like to find out more about the partnership.
