Bio


Meet Faylita Hicks, a young twenty-something year old woman whose voice and poetry have been making waves in the Austin and San Marcos community for years now. Born in the rising sun of California before venturing South, this beautiful Austinite attributes her growth as a writer and performer to the diverse community of open mic venues, her family and friends, and of course, poets.

Faylita Hicks has been writing and performing Spoken Word since July 2003, starting at the Nationally renown spot for Austin's oldest Poetry Slam venue, Ego's. In 2004, she made the ride up North Austin to become apart of the Austin Neo Soul group. Since 2003, she has had opportunity to truly grow her art in thed community. She has held various workshops throughout Austin on poetry writing, stage performance, and applying for college. She served as Gamma Sigma Sigma Sororities Service Vice President for two years. She has been featured all across Texas, including: Ft. Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, Killeen, Houston, San Marcos, Austin, and more.

As an actress, she has appeared in three locally filmed commercials, an award winning Independent film, and over five local theatre productions. In August 2007, she earned a spot on the 2007 Neo-Soul Austin Team which competed for the Title at the 2007 National Poetry Slam. In the same month, Rip the Mic, her premiere open mic venue on the Texas State University campus, had it's first show! Later that year, she competed in the national Season 3 online Famecast.com contest for $10,000 and placed 3rd in the nation with her Spoken Word, making her the first woman in the contest to do so.

In January 2008, Faylita released her first CD, The Experience of this Black Woman. She also earned a spot, for the 2nd time on the Nationally ranked Austin Neo Soul Poetry Slam team and will be traveling with them to the 2008 National Poetry Slam in Madison, Wisconsin this August. An incredibly multi-talented woman,
