Merced College Poetry Showcase is open to ALL performers, rappers, writers, and poets, ALL ages, language and abilities. Performers DO NOT need to be a Merced College student to qualify for Grand Prize.
The Poetry Showcase is a FREE event open to all members of the public. Blanket and chairs are recommended as the seating is a slanted, outdoor amphitheater, but there will be a limited number of chairs available.
There are a limited number of Poetry Masterclasses available and open to anyone interested in tips, writing and performance skills, or "workshopping" an existing piece. The dates for these workshops are below and are lead by Brandon Leake. Attend in-person or via Zoom.
