Living Out Loud July/Aug 2016


We appreciate all feedback we receive about Lynchburg Living and really enjoy it when our “behind-the-scenes” staff are recognized for their hard work.

While a lot of people turn to social media or email, Barbara Bowman, our May/June Artist Profile, sent Lynchburg Living’s art director Chris Meligonis a handwritten thank you note that included the following: “Dear Chris…Thank you for all of your efforts on behalf of my art feature in the May/June issue of Lynchburg Living magazine. You did a beautiful job, and I was thrilled with the results.”

When Virginia Beach-based photographer Jim Pile visited Lynchburg for several days of shoots for “Faces of Lynchburg,” he left quite an impression on Nancy Allen and others from James River Yoga. Allen passed along this feedback: “We took a regular photo to begin with, and it was his suggestion that we do something fun. Specifically, he said, ‘Hey, let’s have some fun. I never get to take pictures of people who can sit on the floor AND get back up again.’ The photo we ended up with—which everyone loves—is just from messing around and taking his suggestion to have fun.”

Head to to participate in our upcoming contests and recognition!
