Influenced by U.S. Indohispanic theories of the borderlands and resolana, Petra Salazar, a poet and educator, launched Philopoetics in 2021 as a challenging learning space to dwell in curiosity and possibility—a space located between the traditional academic boundaries of philosophy and poetry. Philopoetics brings together contemporary philosophers and poets to create an alternative learning community that values emotions, somatic experience, and difference.
Part philosophy class, part poetry workshop, these Zoom courses allow participants to go deep into philosophy and poetry texts with contemporary philosophers and poets.
Philopoetics hosts reading groups that help participants continue their education and engage in college level discussions of texts.
Virtual Reading Groups
Philopoetics offers writing coaching & editing services that cultivate creative agency & accountability through thoughtful approaches informed by extensive experience in alternative pedagogy, creative writing, & publishing.
