#STLMADE Writer Walt Jaschek Showcases St. Louis Stories for TheSTL.com

Appearances, Content Writing, Walt a Life

Walt Jaschek and wife Randy at the launch of the #STLMade Movement and the website TheSTL.com, at Venture Cafe in St. Louis, March 14, 2019.

I’m Walt Jaschek, and I’m #STLMade: born and raised in St. Louis. I’ve built a blessed life here, and have enjoyed a decades-long writing career here. I crafted work of which I’m proud, and which gained some attention from peers and associates; in 2018, I was inducted into the St. Louis Media Hall of Fame. Needless to say, I dig this city like rock ‘n’ roll.

That’s why I was delighted to be invited to contribute articles to the new website TheSTL.com, part of the new #STLMade movement, which intends to “shine light on St. Louis thinkers, doers and makers.” A noble cause. I’m for it.

The site is now alive and my first article is published in it. Headlined Niche of Time, it spotlights a cool company in St. Charles, Masterclock, whose high-tech timepieces are sold globally. The firm is run by a dynamic CEO, John Clark, who is also, you will see, a one-man quote machine! Read the article.

Stay tuned for more articles as assignments arrive, and see what it means to be truly #STLMade. Like me. Meanwhile: Cheers!

Pardon this quick PSA, but you must be registered to vote by October 9, 2018, in order to be eligible to vote in the mid-term elections November 6, 2018. In the above pic, wife Randy and I point to a cool shortcut I put on the whiteword. Text the word “register” to 64433. You’ll get a link to a site that’ll make you official in ~ 2 minutes. So work those thumbs, and see you at the polls November 6!
