Upcoming Appearances

The Hour That Stretches
Sunday, August 26, author Edward Morris hosts poet and storyteller F.I. Goldhaber, poet Duckie Graham, science fiction author Y.T. Cheng, author and filmmaker Kelley Baker, and author and editor Garrett Cook, at The Hour That Stretches.

Inspired by Hour 25, an '80s radio show on Pacifica Radio in Los Angeles which Harlan Ellison co-hosted and appeared on as a frequent guest (and which was the setting of his short story "The Hour That Stretches"), the monthly spoken word showcase welcomes genres not normally included in spoken word events. Join us for an amazing evening of spoken word from 7 to 10 p.m. at Ford Food and Drink, 2505 SE 11th Avenue, Portland.

Free Range Poetry
At 6:45 p.m. on October 1 featured poets F.I. Goldhaber, Tricia Knoll, and Amelia Ettinger read at the Northwest Branch of the Multnomah County Library, 2300 NW Thurman, Portland following an open mic that starts at 6 p.m.
Recently Published Poems
Ode of a Buggy Whip
Ode of a Buggy Whip appears on page 33 of the June 2018 issue of Perspectives Magazine, where inanimate objects and animals have their say.

I wrote the original "Ode to a Buggy Whip" in third person. Kalyna Review, which no longer exists, published that version in 2016. When I saw Perspectives Magazine's call, the concept of telling the story in first instead of third person intrigued me, so it became "Ode of a Buggy Whip".

Not Enough
The December New Voices section of Poetic Medicine features my poem, "Not Enough".

In light of the 2016 election, Eve Lyons, the curator, decided Poetic Medicine will be another vehicle for the resistance, publishing new work on themes about "Black Lives Matter" and other marginalized groups at risk in a Trump presidency.
Hate Speech in a Hostile World
The November 15 Placeholder Magazine features three of my poems: "Lessons from Martin Niemöller", "Hate Speech ≠ Free Speech", and "Braving a Hostile World".

A fiercely independent critical voice covering contemporary arts, culture, and literature, Placeholder Magazine provides an accessible forum for diverse voices as well as energizing and activating young leaders through artistic practice, collaborative and collective decision making, and community-based projects.
