MEET THE ARTISTS

Carrie Fountain

Carrie Fountain’s poems have appeared in Tin House, Poetry, and The New Yorker, among others. She is the author of the collections Burn Lake (Penguin, 2010) and Instant Winner (Penguin, 2014), and a recipient of the National Poetry Series Award. Her first novel, I’m Not Missing, is forthcoming from Flatiron Books (Macmillan) in 2018.

Mike Hall

Texas Monthly executive editor Michael Hall graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1979 with a degree in Government. He wrote for various publications, including Trouser Press, Third Coast Magazine, the Austin American-Statesman, and the Austin Chronicle. In 1997 he joined Texas Monthly, where he has won two Texas Gavel Awards from the State Bar of Texas and three Stephen Philbin Awards from the Dallas Bar Association. He was named the CRMA’s Writer of the Year in 2015. Hall’s stories have appeared in The Best American Magazine Writing, The Best American Sports Writing, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, Da Capo Best Music Writing, the New York Times, and Men’s Journal. Hall is also a musician and has played in Austin bands such as Wild Seeds, the Setters, the Lollygaggers, and the Savage Trip.

Tomás Morin

Tomás Q. Morín is the author of Patient Zero and A Larger Country. He translated Pablo Neruda’s The Heights of Macchu Picchu and with Mari L’Esperance co-edited Coming Close: Forty Essays on Philip Levine. He teaches at Texas State University and in the low residency MFA program of Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Krissi Reeves

For more than ten years, Krissi Reeves has explored storytelling through solo performance, creative non-fiction, and spoken word.  Her award-winning one-woman show, Spinning the Bottle, has been performed on stages across Texas, at the San Francisco Fringe Festival and at the Inspire Theatre in Downtown Las Vegas. In 2011, Krissi was selected as an Associate Artist In Residence for Solo Performance at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. She was also anointed Austin’s Individual Poetry Slam Champion in both 2006 and 2009. Krissi is currently working on a new multi-media storytelling show, Wonder Wheels, a live comedy that highlights her pre-teen misadventures at the local rollerskating rink. Somewhere along the way, Krissi developed a curious fascination with neuroscience and slow jams.

Adam Sultan

Adam Sultan moved from his hometown of Los Angeles to Austin in 1986, and began a musical career as a guitarist for former Sony recording artists Poi Dog Pondering shortly after. His musical life has spanned decades, as both sideman and solo artist, and he is co-creator of the “sado-vaudevillian” cabaret act, Mistress Stephanie & Her Melodic Cat. He has been a composer, writer, and performer for numerous Austin-based theater and dance companies. In the last five years he found new breath in the storytelling scene, as a regular contributor to Bedpost Confessions, Soundtrack Series, and others.

Adam has been an avid meditation practitioner for thirty years and has served as director of the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center, where he currently teaches mindfulness practices and contemplative arts.

Adam has longed for a enduring venue that could play host a cross-pollination of different art mediums, including music, theater, and culinary arts. This formed a vision that found common ground with Erin Hallagan and Story Bar.
