Greetings and Salutations

author photoI’m Kristian, and I’m a writer.

(Hi, Kristian.)

I’ve been published as both Kristian Wilson and, more recently, as K.W. Colyard.

On this blog, I share writing guides, bookish listicles, musings, and updates.

From 2015–2022, I worked as a books features writer at Bustle by day. But by moonlight, I fought evil and — wait, that’s Sailor Moon. Oh, right, I moonlight as a freelancer and adjunct professor. You can read some of my work at LadyClever, The Artifice, Elite Daily, and

I am the author of the BNW-nominated “Those Who Forget and Those Who Perish,” which appeared in Seize the Press in 2022. My fiction has also appeared in Clarkesworld and Diabolical Plots. I’m currently working on a horror novel.

My pronouns are they/she.

But, hey, enough about me. I want to hear from you! Follow me on Twitter @kristianwriting or drop me a line at kristianwriting [AT] gmail [DOT] com to get in touch.
