The Cambridge Writers’ Workshop is excited to introduce our new Grant Writing and Programming intern, AM Ringwalt! AM is a graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy, where she studied creative writing under Chris Dombrowski. She is currently a senior at Emerson College, where she studies poetry and philosophy.
In 2013, Ringwalt was named a YoungArts Finalist and a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts Semi-Finalist for her short story Babies. Recent publications include poems in The Grief Diaries, Rogue Agent, and Talking River. Currently, she is at work on a full-length poetry manuscript and pursuing publication of her novella, Nando.
Also a folk musician, Ringwalt’s performances include a celebrity-judged talent show (via Rookie magazine) in Brooklyn and a Gala hosted by YoungArts in Miami honoring Robert Wilson. Bluer Flame, a series of songs recorded on her iPhone and processed through her partner’s tape deck, can be found on her Bandcamp page later this summer.
Before joining us at the CWW, Ringwalt spent time in Dublin, where she interned at the Irish Writers’ Centre and explored “thin places” by way of Beckett, Yeats and a weekend adventure in Connemara.
