NEW: Learn how to write fiction from a real writer. New York Times Best Selling author, writing teacher, and expert Irene Zabytko will take you through all the essential craft elements of writing literary fiction like the great writers: plot, characters, pacing, dialogue and more. Each chapter includes strategic exercises to help diagnose and improve your novel and short stories. Throughout, Zabytko explains how she wrote her first bestselling novel, THE SKY UNWASHED (available on Amazon.com). Recommended for writers of all levels. (Kindle Edition).
This eagerly awaited short story collection is based on the Ukrainian community in Irene’s Chicago neighborhood. One of the stories, “Obligation,” won the PEN Syndicated Fiction Award, and was read on National Public Radio’s “The Sound of Writing.”
Irene’s stunning debut novel about Chornobyl (Ukrainian transliteration of Chernobyl) and the evacuees who returned to their irradiated villages. It was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Book, A Book Sense '76 Pick Selection, and a New England Booksellers Association Discovery Title. The e-book version was rated Number One on Amazon.com and appeared on “The New York Times Bestseller E-Books List.”
In 100 Literary Clichés to Avoid, Scorn, and Delete (Volume 1), you will find and recognize 100 of the most commonly used clichés with witty (far wittier than the clichés) commentaries on why not to use them (unless it’s deliberate and even then it’s risky).
Beware and be aware--and have a good laugh too.
