Chris Courtney Martin hails from Philadelphia, where she was introduced to her craft. In high school, she placed in the Philadelphia Young Playwrights competition three years out of four. After receiving the prestigious Liberty scholarship, Martin started Drexel University's Screenwriting & Playwriting program, where she switched gears to focus on screenwriting. Martin graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree from Drexel's SCRP program, as well as minors in Film & Video and Art History. She has since won/placed in several screenwriting competitions (including Urbanworld and Emerging Screenwriters) and received promotion via the 2018 Young & Hungry List, 2018 Bitch List and ISA's Top 25 Screenwriters to Watch in 2019. Though she is known for her work in Horror/Thriller, Martin's body of work explores an array of genres, typically through the lens of Black female protagonists. She coined the motto "craft with conscience," which expresses her passion for producing socially relevant/politically progressive works and maintaining artistic integrity.
