Aliscia began writing as a youth by journaling and creating stories. It was a way for her to deal with her emotions and turbulent upbringing. She later picked writing back up when she became involved with the Youth Ministry at church. She would write short plays, speeches, and poems for the children to recite.
In 2012, Aliscia was re-introduced to poetry through friends and some personal struggles in her life. During this time she found solace in writing and her horizon was broadened
as she saw her life story being written out in poetic form, which she refers to as her “mind spillage”. This caused her to share her work with others online and to eventually create a group through FaceBook where all could come and freely express themselves in poetic form (Poetic Freedom Café).https://www.facebook.com/groups/Poeticfreedomcafe/
Aliscia has been featured on “The Literary Corner” a blog radio show where she shared her art of poetry and on Eloquently Speaking an online magazinehttp://eloquentlyspeaking.homestead.com/aliscia.html

A few of them are Blacktopia, SouthEast Hip Hip Hop, Ceez World, and Women of Power. Aliscia has also been featured on several blogtalk radio shows and networks.
