Hey there, thanks for stopping by. My name is Kyle McMillan. I am an author and a blogger, an Instagram Poet known as Tennet Semmes, a Wordpress Designer & fledgling entrepreneur, as well as a number of other things.
My writing has been featured on Rebelle Society, Matador Network, High Existence, The Unbounded Spirit, and a few others. I launched my first commercial website a few years back, and will be launching another sometime in the next year.
This site, however, I created in order to simply put words down (when I have time) for no other reason than to put words down.
That being said, there's a few things you should probably know. Metanoïa is a very eclectic collection of work. It's born out of a lifelong (I'm 40 at the time of this writing) insatiable curiosity, along with the frustrating inability to learn in any traditional manner. This is the resulting catalysis. From horror to children's fiction; from personal development to social criticism; from bumbling scientific inquiry to floundering around in mysticism, I do my best to simply express the questions, feelings and ideas I receive in as lucid and intriguing a voice as possible. I have no agenda and I'm not trying to sell you anything (yet), and I'm definitely not pushing any particular world-view.
Why? Because I don't have one. While I definitely have my moments of clarity and inspiration, I also have many composed of frustration, sadness and confoundment, just like any other human being. (A quick peruse through the poetry section should make that quite clear.) I'm just writing stuff, and learning as I go. So if you're an academic, you probably won't enjoy yourself here. And if you're religious, please know that I am not.
I have, however, known many kind and brilliant academics and devout individuals in my life - good people - I'm just saying that those don't seem to be the type that get in touch over email.
But if you're an open-minded, generally positive person, and want to collaborate on something (preferably, but not necessarily, paying - I am quite busy), do send me a message. Or, if you simply enjoy my work, consider subscribing below. I am often terribly erratic with my posting, so this is the best way to stay up to date with new content.
Thanks for reading,
