Poison Pen ATX: Safe Word

May 23, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Poison Pen: Celebrating Life’s little f*cked up moments.

On May 23 Poison Pen presents: SAFE WORD. Poison Pen is a literary event that reaches beyond the written word to explore creative work with Austin’s best artists of all kinds. Join hosts Seth Meeks and Felix Morgan for a night of creativity, trivia, giveaways, and only slightly naughty fun.

Guests this month include glitterati psychedelic poet Hanna Jove, visual artist and on-screen heartthrob Gareth Maguire, and local dominatrix Mercenary Mistress.

Half reading, half gameshow, all fun!

Hannah Jove:
Austin’s swoon-worthy, psychedelic poet, glitterati ray of passionate sunshine with a neon mullet to die for, Hannah Jove is gracing our stage to rattle your cage and/or break your heart. Read more at www.heartbroth.com or on her FB page, https://www.facebook.com/HeartBroth/

Gareth Maguire:
Gareth Maguire is a poet, an actor, and a visual artist from Ballymena, County Antrim, Ireland. For visual art he works primarily in neo-expressionist, graffiti -style painting. Gareth’s art focuses on suggestive dichotomies such as freedom versus occupation, sovereignty versus subservience, war versus peace, love versus hate, Catholicism versus protestantism and religion versus irreligion. You can see more of his art at https://www.saatchiart.com/gfunkmaster

Mercenary Mistress:
Mercenary Mistress is a professional Dominatrix with extensive experience in fulfilling fantasies of gentlemen across the country. She sees domination and submission as not only a physical contract but a meeting of the minds between two individuals. From this perspective, sessions are a stage-play where each participant plays a character, returning to their usual persona after the session is complete. Learn more at http://mercenarymistress.com
