TWO-LANE LIVIN’ MAGAZINE:
The largest grassroots publication in West Virginia for more than ten years, Two-Lane Livin’s past issues are available online at www.twolanelivin.com, and more archives will be added regularly.
We do still offer a popular seasonal e-newsletter, and you can sign up for the newsletter in the column on the right of this page.
More than 90% of the content in the magazine was exclusive to the publication, written by volunteer columnists from across West Virginia and Appalachia. In our ten years, we featured columns from more than 35 West Virginia writers including Mack Samples, Granny Sue Holstein, Janet Smart, Sherri Brake, and others.
Cover photos were always reader-submitted, and the magazine also featured crossword puzzles, mind games, hidden graphics, and more. Once, the April edition was printed upside-down, in honor of April Fool’s Day.
Since launching in 2007, the magazine consistently averaged a 99% read-rate. With survey results showing that each copy averaged 2.6 readers each — each print issue potentially reached over 40,000 readers. Flipbook editions available online continue to reach readers far and wide today.
Two-Lane Livin’ Magazine is also archived at the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and at R.F. Kidd Library at Glenville State College.
