A Local Ocala Magazine

We believe in the power of stories to connect humanity, customers to business, and individuals to community. Our monthly publication is packed with personal stories from Ocala and Marion County residents.

Inside, you will find feature stories based on a monthly theme, articles and tips From the Experts in their field, individuals Breaking Social Norms, The Chews Letter with stories about those in the food industry, local artists hiding out in the Artist Corner, and stories From the Paddock. Plus, you might just find stories about non-profits, employees, or customers sponsored by local businesses.

The Locala™ journey began with its first issue in June 2021, and it is published by Lisa Anderson Media, LLC, an indie publishing house focusing on books and community magazines. The company was founded in the spring of 2020 after the founder, Lisa Anderson, resigned during a furlough from a well-known media company amidst the COVID-19 lockdown. Since then, the company has focused on bringing people together through the art of storytelling.
