Welcome to the Herstun Writer!

What is the Herstun Writer?

The Herstun Writer is a blog dedicated to humanity, perspective, and thought. The topics covered are vast but the goal is to learn new things and grow as communicators while laughing along the way.

Wilde Thoughts is the home of W.D. Herstun’s wildest thoughts. You can expect book, movie, film, or recipe reviews. Also don’t be surprised to see a lot of sunrises, sunsets, trees, and nature in general. Poetry, art, and fashion will be around too. After all, being a student of the universe means being willing to learn anything.

The Art of Life is a constant theme on the Herstun Writer. The Art Series is where the artsy meets the ordinary. The Art of Beauty and the Art of Adventure are featured in tandem. Art is life. And we have the brushes. 

The Herstun FM Readio is the part of the blog that features contributors and artists from all walks of life (and from all over the world) communicating their passions. From fashion, to travel, food, politics, family, and identity — the artists and writers that work with Herstun are all willing to let you peek in on their lives and share their experiences.

Who is Behind-the-Scenes?

W.D. “Wilde” Herstun is the creator of the Writer and a self-described student of the universe. Her literary patron saint is Zora Neale Hurston. An avid book nerd, art geek, nature freak, and general life enthusiast, W.D. hopes to become a published fantasy writer one day soon. 

Welcome to the Journey. Let's grow.
