Greetings and Salutations

(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.

By day, I work as a books features writer for Bustle and teach first-year composition at my alma mater. But by moonlight, I fight evil and — wait, that’s Sailor Moon. Oh, right, I moonlight as a freelancer. You can read some of my work at LadyClever, The Artifice, Elite Daily, and Tor.com.

I’m currently working on a sci-fi novel.

When I’m not writing or reading, you can find me playing Stardew Valley or Dungeons & Dragons, singing showtunes, watching Jeopardy!, or napping. My work is fueled by black coffee, red lipstick, and the urge to be better tomorrow.

But, hey, enough about me. I want to hear from you! Follow me on Twitter @kristianwriting or drop me a line here to get in touch.
