He has taught at a number of American colleges and universities, most recently the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.

S. Salazar: Raised in the Pacific Northwest, S. Salazar has always felt at home in the mountains. As an English teacher, she strove to show students that success isn’t defined by background. S. is published in Harpur Palate, The Acentos Review, Booth Journal, Poet Lore, and elsewhere. She's an MFA candidate currently juggling multiple poetry and young adult fiction manuscripts that explore generational trauma, identity, Latinx heritage, diaspora, and mental health. Her debut poetry collection Raíces, Relics, and Other Ghosts (Kelsay Books, 2023) examines topics of disconnection and reconnection to her Puerto Rican roots through trial and error, genealogical exploration, and the search for long-separated familia. When she isn’t writing, she can be found hiking with loved ones, talking to her parrot, Gizmo, and gushing over every dog she sees.
