Brandon Wint is a poet, spoken word artist, and prominent teacher of writing, currently living in Edmonton, Alberta. He is best known for his ability to meaningfully articulate the mysteries of love, romance and kindness in his poetry. He is a poet who uses the potential of writing and speaking to articulate the beauties of the world, and where possible, the silver-linings that underscore the ugliness and struggle that is inherent to the human condition. His typically soft-spoken, musical and delicately-rendered spoken word pieces have garnered attention and admiration from audience members across Canada and places like England and Australia and the United States, where his life and work has been showcased on radio and in print. He is a two-time national slam champion, the author of one collection of poetry, Love, Our Master and an album entitled The Long Walk Home. His second album, Infinite Mercies, was released in February 2018.
