Best Local Poet/Spoken Word Artist


Tony Styxx

If you ask Styxx about his passions he will tell you poetry and music without a doubt, but he will also mention history if you get him talking long enough. Styxx wanted to be a history teacher from a young age, but now he has found that teaching poetry at Arts For Learning and his work with young students is a way to satisfy both desires. He teaches k-12 how to write poetry and Hip-Hop lyrics but uses the opportunity to expand off of other facets of their education. He often has students examine their own pasts through poetry as writing prompts. Styxx has performed with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and was a key voice in the #IndyWelcomesAll campaign. Currently he is gearing up to record his first poetry album.
