Brandon Wint is an Ottawa-based writer and poet who has graced stages and captured the attention of audiences across Canada with his unique spoken word performances since 2008. Through his insightful performance pieces, Wint encapsulates the subtle and remarkable beauty of the human condition. As a poet who has been part of two Canadian Festival of Spoken Word championship teams, and as one who has traveled the country performing poetry for diverse audiences, Wint has been exposed to many styles of poetry, many ways of relating, and many different artistic aesthetics. By now, he is a veteran of the Canadian spoken word community, having done well over 100 performances, both as a solo artist and as part of The Recipe Poetry Troupe. His spoken word pieces have been recorded and included on four compilation albums, and his poetry has been published in national anthologies. Brandon is a poet of unique national distinction and renown, and he is happy to be a part of what makes this year’s Versefest a beautiful and memorable experience
