Writing Your Novel w/Howard Schwach
Monday, June 14 @7:30pm-9:00pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Monday, repeating until Monday, June 21, 2021
“Seeing a novel take shape from the blank page to the last word is a remarkable experience. It is surpassed only by knowing that your book is read and enjoyed by another person.”
– Jonathan Dunsky, the author of the Adam Lapid series
Writing a novel takes lots of time and effort. As one smart person famously said, “Writing a novel is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.”
Join writer, novelist, and teacher Howard Schwach for this inspirational three-part series on how to write a novel.
Please Note: Though this event is geared to our 65+ members, all ages are welcome!
Retired New York City teacher and community newspaper editor Howard J. Schwach is a published author with several young adult educational books and three novels under his belt. At 79, Mr. Schwach took a two-week trip to Israel joined his daughter, Amy Schwach, our Executive Director, for Temple Shaaray Tefila’s congregational trip to Israel. Mr. Schwach’s life-long interest in archeology and his secular Jewish upbringing added to his excitement of visiting historic sites and resulted in his writing his second novel, “The Masada Complex.” His novel “American 587 Heavy,” focused on the tragic crash of American Airlines Flight 587 in Rockaway in 2001 and he recently published his third novel, “Ain’t Love Enough.”
