Tiah Lindner Raphael is a writer, editor, and teacher living in Portland, Oregon. As a practicing poet, Tiah relishes the energy of writing groups, workshop, and critique. When she isn’t playing with words, Tiah can be found fighting the travel bug or indulging her other creative interests, including photography, urban gardening, and (mostly successful) culinary experimentation.
Tiah has spent over eight years in communications positions for public-service organizations such as Trillium Family Services, the University of Oregon, and most recently, Oregon Health & Science University. Over the last decade, she’s developed everything from radio spots and short screenplays to executive speeches and fundraising campaign materials.
Tiah holds a B.A. in English Literature and Film Studies from the University of Oregon and an M.S. in Writing and Book Publishing from Portland State University. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in CutBank Literary Magazine, VoiceCatcher, the anthology Forty Years of CutBank, and Just Now: Twenty New Portland Poets edited by Peter Sears and Cloudbank Books.
