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, New York Observer, Asymptote, Origins, Litro NY, HTMLGIANT, Construction Literary Magazine, Talking Writing and elsewhere in print and on the Web. Before turning to books, he had spent several years at PC Magazine, where his reporting was 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 most under-served neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Steven has recently completed a collection of stories, "Foreverfall." 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.
