About

This is my space for polite and sometimes not so polite musings on books, media, politics and culture. All musings are my own.

A bit more about me:
Steven Volynets was born in Soviet Ukraine and raised in Brooklyn. He is the first prize winner of the 2016 Moment Magazine-Karma Foundation international fiction contest. His work has been nominated for The Pushcart Prize, received Honorable Mention in Glimmer Train and has been lauded by The Paris ReviewHis fiction, essays and literary translations can be found in Fiction International, J Journal, Asymptote, Origins, Litro NY, HTMLGIANT, Construction Literary Magazine, Talking Writing and New York Observer where his piece on Jonathan Franzen has gone viral and become a social media cause célèbre. Before turning to books, he had spent several years at PC Magazine. His reporting has been listed for several awards, including the Annual Jesse H. Neal Award for business journalism. After leaving PC Mag, he went on to cover crime and other local news in some of the poorest neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Steven has recently completed a collection of stories. When he is not working on his novel or translating books from Russian, he enjoys writing scripts. One of them, 'Mo,' has recently been selected as a semi-finalist for the 2017 Brooklyn Film Festival screenplay competition. Steven can be found on Twitter, which he doesn't take very seriously.
