Exploring the borderlands between poetry & philosophy


Influenced by Indohispano theories of the borderlands, Petra Salazar, a poet and educator, launched Philopoetics as a space located between the traditional academic boundaries of philosophy and poetry. Philopoetics facilitates reading groups and workshops, which bring together contemporary philosophers and poets to create an alternative learning community. One-on-one creative support also available.

Virtual Courses

Part philosophy class, part poetry workshop, these Zoom courses allow participants to go deep into philosophy and poetry texts with contemporary philosophers and poets.

Virtual Reading Groups

Philopoetics hosts reading groups that help participants continue their education and engage in college level discussions of texts.

Creative Support

Philopoetics offers writing coaching & editing services that cultivate creative agency & accountability through thoughtful approaches informed by extensive experience in alternative pedagogy, creative writing, & publishing.
