Cancellation & Refund Policy >

In this workshop, we will read essays and stories that bridge reality and imagination. How can we write about our own lives through fiction? How can imaginative elements energize creative nonfiction? Through exercises like “two truths and a lie,” we will narrate our way through the real and unreal.

AM Ringwalt is a writer and musician. A contributing blogger for Action Books, her words appear or are forthcoming in Black Warrior Review, Jacket2 and Washington Square Review. "The Wheel," her debut book, published in 2021 from Spuyten Duyvil.

What Our Students Say

AM Ringwalt is a caring and attentive instructor, with a great eye for the type of poetry we want to write and we want to feel. It's a pleasure knowing her as a person and an even greater one studying with her as a teacher.

AM Ringwalt really opened my eyes to the beauty of literature. The poem I wrote in her workshop really showed me how greatly I’m influenced by people and environment. I’m trying to learn how to write better and hearing AM quote some of my words really made me happy. Thanks for the encouraging words.

I loved taking class with AM. She brought insight while at the same time acknowledged and valued the insights of classroom participants as equal to her own. The pacing of the class was great and it never dragged or rushes.
