Madeleine Marie Slavick

Madeleine Marie Slavick Brief Biography

Madeleine Marie Slavick is an American writer, poet, and photographer of German-American descent whose work is notable for crossing cultural barriers. She is known as a Hong Kong expat poet. As a founder of the Sixth Finger Press, she published Chinese poetry bilingually alongside English, and she helped bring poet Zheng Danyi to international attention.

Slavick traveled widely, lived for many years in Hong Kong, and in recent years is based in Carterton, New Zealand. Her photographs have been exhibited internationally. Reviewer Bradley Winteron in the Taipei Times described Slavik's Delicate Access as having "poise and a terse intelligence" with "nothing unbuttoned" and having a "minimalist concentration." Reviewer Tammy Ho in the Asian Review of Books described her poetry as transforming small and "seemingly insignificant things" into "meaning-loaded symbols." Reviewer Michael Ingham described her poem Mong kok Market, about life in Hong Kong, as depicting the "instant slaughter one cannot avoid witnessing at the live meat and fish stalls." Slavik has stated, "In the projects I undertake, I try to create a sense of community which enriches me, the other participants, and the audience."
