Slaughter Us, Chris Slaughter!

Confession: we’re really excited to hear Chris Slaughter read this Saturday at Bernice’s May be May event.  (And not just to see how many Sgt. Slaughter jokes he’ll put up with.)


Chris Slaughter graduated from Medgar Evers College with a degree in English (concentration in creative writing) and obtained an MFA in poetry from Hunter College where he received a Shuster Award for outstanding master thesis. He has also received fellowships from Cave Canem and North Country Institute for Writers of Color. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he has dedicated himself to traveling and working inventive ways of bringing new voice to his writing. Chris is a director at Eagle Academy for Young Men of Harlem while chipping away at his new manuscript.
