Congratulations to Catina Bacote: The 2023 “Miss Sarah” Fellowship Awardee

Trillium Arts is delighted to announce Catina Bacote of New Haven, Connecticut as the 2023 awardee for the “Miss Sarah” Fellowship for Black Women Writers. The Fellowship, named in honor of Sarah M. Johnson of Hickory, NC, aims to provide Black women writers a restful environment conducive to reflection and writing. It also offers uninterrupted time to plant the seed of an idea for a new writing project or to develop or complete a project underway. Learn more about the Catina Bacote.

A panel of esteemed black women writers reviewed 38 competitive applications that were received from around the country in the genres of non-fiction, biographies and memoirs. The panel ultimately awarded the Fellowship to Ms. Bacote for the 2023 cycle. The “Miss Sarah” Fellowship offers a variety of benefits including a $1,000 honorarium, transportation, and accommodations for ten days in July at the Trillium Arts artist residency location in rural Mars Hill, NC and/or at “Montford Manor” in downtown Asheville, NC.
