This episode we caught up with Brixton born and raised Telixia Inico. A Published Author, Public Speaker, Podcaster, Spoken Word Artist, Poet & Creative Entrepreneur.
We had a great discussion finding out about Telixia’s experience of navigating the education system as a dyslexic, how this later gave birth to a powerful healing system found in writing poetry at 11 years old and at 16 her words became the way that manoeuvred her experience with gang culture. Leading her to finally come out from the shadows at 23 when she allowed the world to hear her story.
In 2015 she hit the ground running with her first poetry collection ‘TheNakedTruth‘ published by Xlibris Publishing, followed by numerous high profile performances around London which includes headlining Apple’s ‘TodayAtApple’ event for International Women’s Day 2019, Telixia is determined to make noise in the creative industry by using her unique style as a Spoken Word Artist.
2020 saw the release of P.O.E.T a collective of Spoken Word pieces created to encourage conversations & enhance the thinking of the masses. Each piece is based on real life events and common issues that we face daily within our society. This project is inspired by her reality & personal emotions which has enabled her to create a powerful body of work, based around thoughts and feelings, with the hope that everyone will have a chance to relate.
Fast forward to 2021 with a wide range of experience under her belt within the creative industry has led her to open Croydon’s first Creative Hub & co-working space LDN Creates.
