At Baldwin, I felt fully held as both a writer and a Black person—something I didn’t know I needed in a residency so acutely until I came to this space. During my residency, I worked on parts of my novel that had troubled me for months. Every day, I felt so deeply inspired by the artists who came before me and those who will surely come after. I left Baldwin feeling like my novel problems weren’t so insurmountable after all. I will always cherish my time at Baldwin, this radical generosity, this gift of quiet and serenity.
