Elena Schwolsky


Elena Schwolsky lives and writes in Brooklyn, New York. In August, 2010, she was named a finalist in the SheWrites.com Passion Project Non-Fiction Book Contest (www.shewrites.com) for her submission from Unfolding: a memoir of forbidden travel, AIDS and healing in Cuba. An essay drawn from this book, "Searching for Piña in Havana," appears in the anthology Storied Dishes (Praeger, November 2010) and another, "Keeping Secrets," was published in the Reflections column of the the American Journal of Nursing in 2011. An award from the Barbara Deming/Money for Women Fund and a grant from the Robert Boehm Foundation supported the initial research for Unfolding. A chapter she co-authored on bereavement was included in Children, Families and AIDS: Psychosocial and Therapeutic Issues (Guilford Press, 1995). ANOTHER BROTHER, a film she co-produced about the life of her husband Clarence Fitch, was broadcast on national PBS and won CINE’s Golden Eagle award among others.
