Darien Aris Kirst

Freelance Writer & Illustrator

Possessing a voice to speak and tell thoughts often locked away— writing has always been a source of comfort for me. And while it’s useful to have a means of communicative clarity, I’ve always been drawn to fiction. To take a moment to escape real life and get lost in somewhere far beyond has always brought me joy. What brings me even more happiness, however, is to share those worlds with others and to give everyone the opportunity to read the words often trapped within one’s own mind.
