STL Author Invitational

In Feb. 2018, Some’n Unique Magazine presented our 1st Annual St. Louis Author Invitational.  The event was held at the Ferguson Community Center and was designed to bring more attention to St. Louis’ Indie/SP Authors.

S.U.M, LLC Owner, F. Kenneth Taylor, decided to make the event an invitational because he felt it provided a certain level of sophistication and prestige to the event.  He personally selected the following St. Louis Authors;

  1. Jason J. Nugent – Former S.U.M Writer
  2. Alaina Coleman – Bilingual Author
  3. Christopher Kaiser – Host of IDGAF Poetry @ Legacy Books & Cafe
  4. Ed Protzel – Former Professor at University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL)

St. Louis Author, Entrepreneur, and Business Coach, Rhonda McAllister, was chosen as the Keynote Speaker for the event, and provided a great wealth of knowledge and advice.  Ms. McAllister also appears on the cover and as the exclusive interview of the March issue of Some’n Unique Magazine.

The young, 25 year old, St. Louis Entrepreneur, Clinnesha Artis, Owner of S.U.M sponsor, Munch Wagon, provided excellent catering for The 1st Annual St. Louis Author Invitational.

There is also a feature article of the event in the March issue of Some’n Unique Magazine. We were extremely pleased and gracious to be able to present this event to the St. Louis area, and look forward to growing each year.
