Hello! My name is Shiloh Slaughter, formerly Shiloh Meyers, and also known as Tornline at the poetry slams. I have written and illustrated the latest novel, 'Charyli, Where Love Never Fails,' during a break when my financial aid didn't come on time. I'm back in school now, as a Creative Writing Junior at Saginaw Valley State University.

Background Information

Before I was a writer, I wrote but did not know a writer was a possible occupation, or even a person to be. I wrote because it was the one thing at that time in my life that could not and was not taken from me. I wrote in crayon when my pen was taken, in safety pins, and other things. Later, I was introduced to slam poetry in Saginaw, my home town. Then it was Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson. Following soon after, was Mr. Jeff Vande Zande, my fiction professor at Delta College, who encouraged me to write fiction when at the time, 'I only wrote poetry.' Now, I am dedicated to literature altogether, and plan to expand myself literally in every way possible.

Birth Place
Saginaw, MI 

My first contest was of third grade. I knew a poet's life was rough, when I entered two poems: one which I hated, but encouraged to submit, and the other which I loved. The one I hated won.

-Delta College Skip Renker Creative Writing Award
-Published in numerous anthologies, and college magazines

-organized street laundromat poetry slams and my own poetry show at the White Crow Cafe in Saginaw

-handmade my own poetry books and sold them out of my backpack for gas money as a college freshman

-handed out free handmade christian poetry books during Christmas time of 2006

Additional Information

I want my readers to understand that I write for those readers who feel strange and out of place in society, and I write to encourage those poets who feel they are good poets, but are not accepted academically. We all know most of our favorite artists weren't loved until they were dead. Let us not repeat history.
