The vision for THEOPOETICS is to have it serve as an interfaith container for the intersection of several conversations with theology: aesthetics, literature, embodiment, creativity studies, and the philosophy of imagination. While there is a preference for content specifically exploring facets of theopoetics as it has been identified by prior scholarship, use of the term “theopoetics” or “theopoetic” is not the sole criteria for interest. All work that takes up considerations of the method and genre of theological reflection will be considered, especially as it pertains to an emphasis on the particular and the evocative over and above the abstract and propositional. Writing submitted should be high quality, but it need not be academic in style.
