The Nearlyology of Distancing; On Being Nearly Old; Deguiltification; My Asemic NearlyDiary

In 2018 transmedia writer Chris Ifso completed a PhD in Creative Writing on Nearlywriting Nearlyology at Bath Spa University. Now he’s developing a podcast, performance and workshops, plus new fiction on the theme of percussion. He writes about time, sex and gender, our changing sense of identity in these digitised and distanced times – and how the things we nearly do influence who we really are.

“Chris Ifso is an artistic explorer. It’s great to see his work come to such vivid life. The Nearly Project is fascinating, playful, serious, wide-ranging, truly thought-provoking. ‘What Didn’t Quite’ is beautifully written”

– DAVID ALMOND, Author of SKELLIG and MY NAME IS MINA
