About Miah Prescod

Miah Prescod is a first-generation American writer and artist of Trinidadian & Antiguan descent. She is a Brooklyn native and alumna of Sarah Lawrence College. She writes about what matters most to her: her Caribbean culture, religion, womanhood, Black motherhood, and so much more. Her work has been published in Lucky Jefferson and Dark Phrases. She is also a contributor in the book, Teaching Beautiful Brilliant Black Girls. Prescod’s first full-length collection of poems is titled Black Girl Diary, which she self-published in Fall 2020.


As a multi-modal artist, future educator, and aspiring doula, Miah hopes that her work can raise awareness of some of the issues we’re facing today. She stands firm in her belief that Black women and girls should take up space wherever they are and is an advocate for the youth and their education.  When Miah isn’t writing or creating art or getting lost in research, you can find her dancing to Soca or binge-watching a political drama on Netflix.
