I was born in Zimbabwe, in the remote eastern highlands district of Nyanga, in Mapfurira village. I left Nyanga for Chitungwiza city in 1994, and I started exploring writing that year when I was barely twenty. My first book, Voices from Exile, a collection of poetry on Zimbabwe's political situation and exile in South Africa, was published by Lapwing publications, Ireland, in 2010. KEYS IN THE RIVER: Notes from a Modern Chimurenga, a novel of interlinked stories that deal with life in modern day Zimbabwe was published by Savant books and publications, USA, in 2012. (http://www.savantbooksandpublications.com/9780985250621.php). A book of creative non-fiction pieces, THE BLAME GAME, will be published by Langaa RPCIG (Cameroon, 2013). A collection of love poems will come out from DIPPRESS, USA, in June 2013. A novel entitled A DARK ENERGY will be published by Aignos publishing company (USA). I was nominated for the Pushcart twice, 2008, 2010, and commended for the Dalro prize in 2008. I was nominated for and attended the Caine African writing workshop in 2012. My work has been translated into Spanish and French. I have published over 250 pieces of short stories, essays, memoirs, poems and visual art in over 150 magazines, journals, and anthologies in the following countries: the USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, Zimbabwe, India, Mexico, Kenya, Cameroon, Italy, Ghana, Uganda, France, Zambia, Nigeria, Spain, Romania, Cyprus, Australia and New Zealand.

Deeply immersed in Yoruba oral tradition, Titilope formed a love of spoken word at a young age. Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, her family immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta when Titilope was 13 years old.

She has performed at The Roar Spoken Word Festival, Poetree Open Mic, Afro Quiz, Legacies 2008, Ribbon Rouge and several events around Edmonton. She recently graduated from the University of Alberta with a Civil Engineering degree, but continues to share her words within the Edmonton community. Her words are pure, honest, and grab straight for the heart.
