I stare at my profile pic. I don’t smile. I’m not a bad person. The last bad thing I did, the last nasty thing, I did when I was only ten.

I look down to our hands, both wrinkly, more aged than I ever thought they’d be. ‘I just want you to know, I’m sorry.’ She leans in to kiss my cheek. We go back to our ice creams.

About Kieran

Kieran Wyatt lives on the Fylde Coast, England. He is co-chair of GenSex, an interdisciplinary research group at Edge Hill University, asking provocative questions about gender and sexuality. He also runs the communications for artdoesnotgetyouajob, a new arts initiative, launched last year at the Poetry Café in London. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing in 2018. At the start of 2020, he was supposed to move to Nanjing, China, to teach English as a foreign language, but those plans were scuppered for obvious reasons.

Welcome to The Art of Everyone

In writing my book Everything Else, I realised everybody has their own “everything else”—the thoughts and stories, the experiences, the skills, the imagination, the dreams.

Left unexplored or unshared, they can leave a void, depriving our spirit of something beautiful and nourishing. Having learned that, I created the space here to manifest my own "everything else," and to help others share theirs.

The path here is lined with flowers, the walls are endless, the shelves inviting, the table is set, and there is room for adventure. Bring your own creations or just open your soul for a retreat. This is a space to breathe. Leave the conventional world behind and enjoy.

Thank you for being here.
