Writer & Doctor of Nearlyology

How do you feel about the things you’ve nearly done in your life?

The new Nearly Badge

 TELL US YOUR NEARLIES. Which close shaves and near misses do you remember – and why?

READ THE BOOK: ‘WHAT DIDN’T QUITE’. In this funny and compelling novel of time and secrets, regrets and strange desires, Nearlyologists Carraday, Freya and Jamie gather examples of ‘Nearlies’ which they help people to acknowledge and celebrate, turn into actions or dissolve into the Nearlyverse. 

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.
