Autumn Rinaldi

Autumn Rinaldi (28)

Autumn is a St. Louis native! Because she was homeschooled, Autumn has sadly never been able to participate when anyone asks the inevitable question: "Where did you go to high school?" Despite this impairment, she received degrees in Music (Voice) and Art at Lindenwood University, and has been a freelance photojournalist for several years. Autumn likes to blend aspects of art decor and fashion photography with journalism, and she loves to play with every imaginable style of creativity, photographing events such as, The Kevin Kline Awards, The St. Louis RAMS, Alive Magazine, and various boutiques and venues. For the last few years, she's also decided to tackle the writing profession, armed with a lot more wisdom and enjoyment than what her years of formal education left her!

Since 2009, Autumn has written three novels, two novellas and has been concentrating on short stories about ordinary people in situations out of their element. One of her shorts was recently published in the July edition of Bareback Literary Magazine, and she'll soon have a new work in The Rusty Nail Magazine. Although some people might describe this as unhealthily unfocused, she'd much rather be labeled as unhealthily curious.

Crawling Along Grand Blvd

Written by
St. Louis has a tremendous influence in sports and culture. And in the summer months, it isn't difficult to have a great time, for little to no money, soaking up fragrant parks as well as blazing hot, dusty festivals in the dog-days of August. Late night treats at Ted Drews and listening…

Art Outside of the Box

Written by
In a city where there are endless ways to entertain your mind, you might not always gravitate to a Literary/Arts magazine. When you want to pick up a good story, you might head over to Subterranean Books or peruse the U City Library for the newest John Grisham. And if…

Taking Your Life Back With Yoga

Written by
It has only been in the past few years that our culture’s poor health has become more acknowledged. With the over-stimulation of technology, people are seeing less of the outdoors and more of interactive computer games and friends’ Facebook walls. Thankfully, we are beginning to realize what a prominent (and…

The Lives of the First Ladies

Written by

Redesigning St. Louis

Written by
Modern Art has shaped our society in the way we think about nature and culture. It started with the birth of Impressionism, which suggested that not only religious figures and royalty have merit in art, but that the average man or woman is worthy of a closer look. The Modern…

Inside the Mind of a Haiku Poet

Written by
  Most creative people have called themselves a poet at one time or another. We scribbled in those black and white composition notebooks in our teens and twenties, (which we found and destroyed in our thirties). We sat in smoky coffeehouses (in the days when smoking was still allowed in…
  As the saying goes, a woman’s work is never done. Hardwired never to remain sedentary, a female is content as long as there’s a task to be accomplished and a deadline to meet. She is beset with endless to-do lists and infinite self-expectations, all while juggling everyday tasks and…

A Meeting with Marilyn

Written by
It was my first paying acting gig: a whopping fifty bucks, which seemed to me at the time about five-hundred. But then again, as an actor working in St. Louis, fifty bucks is no small fee, as I think now about all the gigs I’ve done since for absolutely nothing.…

Of Mistletoe, Snowmen, and Pitchforks

Written by
  Ah, the Holiday Season. The time to roast chestnuts down with St. Charles Traditions, see the lights at the Zoo, snuggle up at Tilles Park, and see a play about the depths of Hell. Oh, but wait, but we’re talking about R-S Theatrics here, who never cease to jolt us out of…
