Leaning toward introspection and self-reflection, Herrera's writing addresses themes of gender and race with an Afro-centric perspective. Merging her intimacy with memories that navigate through rhythms of orality and literariness, at times her warm and soft words can be heard as a confession. Without affectation and without false modesty, but with sobriety, she reveals her "open veins."

Internationally renowned poet Nancy Morejón calls Herrera the "queen of transparent verse."
