Greetings wanderer,

My name is Ivan.

This website is my quirky corner of the metaverse, the internet home and a hub for all my work. πŸ–‹β˜•βœ¨

I write essays, short stories, screenplays and translate old Russian texts.

The weaving themes of my work are:

I publish all my essays and stories first on my substack, βœ‰οΈ The Lifeboat, together with personal updates, curated links, books, films and music recommendations. Then, with a delay, they get published here as well.

Everything that I think does not fit the newsletter format gets published here (e.g. listicles, long texts). Feel free to sign up for this website's updates or just to my newsletter below. You won't miss anything either way.

Best ways to contact me:

  • πŸ“§ E-mail - hey@ioann.xyz. I like conversations that demand long-form and thoughtful replies.
  • 🐦 Twitter - @ioann_xyz. Send DM or just follow me.
