About Me

stephen-schenkenberg-2018.jpg

I live with my wife and our young son and daughter in St. Louis, where I’m the Vice President of Communications & Marketing for Forest Park Forever.

Former roles include Senior Strategist & Content Director for the creative agency TOKY and Editor-in-Chief of St. Louis Magazine.

I’m a graduate of Marquette University (BA in English), Northwestern University (MA in Liberal Studies) and the nine-month Leadership St. Louis program (2018-19) within FOCUS St. Louis.

For a good portion of my adult life I’ve had additional interests on the bookish side of things. This includes serving as Editor & Publisher of The Ear’s Mouth Must Move: Essential Interviews of William H. Gass and Abstractions Arrive: Having Been There All the Time, an essay by William H. Gass paired with photographs by Michael Eastman; launching and editing Reading William Gass, a resource for readers of this celebrated American author; editing (with TOKY colleagues) Fires, Fuel and the Fate of 3 Billion (Oxford, 2013), three books from Wisconsin Historical Society Press and one exhibition catalogue from the Pulitzer Arts Foundation; and publishing essays and articles in The Believer, Identity Theory, St. Louis Magazine, The Capital Times, Pop Matters, The Quarterly Conversation, Popular Music & Society, Washington University in St. Louis Magazine, and the PLAYBACK:stl, where I was the Books editor.
