Spoken-word Masterclass Series with Brandon Leake

About  Brandon Leake

Brandon Leake is best known for his 2020 America's Got Talent (AGT) win, earning the coveted golden buzzer, and is the competition's first (and only) spoken-word poetry champion. He is also a father, an educator, a mentor, and a Central Valley (Stockton) native. Merced College Library is thrilled to host a series of free (enrolled MCCD students) masterclass workshops, both virtual and in-person, throughout the Spring 2023 semester.  

About the Masterclass Series

Through a generous one-time President's Circle award, Merced College is offering Masterclass Spoken Word Workshop Series FREE to any enrolled Merced College Student. Most workshops are virtual and run throughout the semester, open to all MCCD students. Brandon provides skill based, engaging, and inspiring poetry curriculum for any student--all talent, skill levels, language, and comfort levels are encouraged! Bring an original poem to workshop! Brainstorm and expand your creativity! Ask Brandon a mind-bending question about life! 

Brandon will also facilitate multiple performance opportunities, culminating in a Spoken Word Final Performance in May 2023, location and time TBD.
