Rosanne Bane

Rosanne Bane is a creativity coach, teaching artist, speaker, and author of Around the Writer's Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer's Resistance, and Dancing in the Dragon's Den: Rekindling the Creative Fire in Your Shadow.

Rosanne says "I am curious about human behavior, passionate about the brain and creativity, and am extremely lucky to be able to read, talk and write about things I'm passionate about, and to talk with, encourage and support fascinating, talented people."

A veteran teaching artist of more than 20 years at the Loft, University of St. Thomas, University of Minnesota and elsewhere, she has helped thousands of writers, artists and creative people of all sorts achieve their professional goals and make their creative dreams reality. She specializes in helping creative people understand why it's so hard (at times) to do the very thing they love to do, and what to do about that resistance.

Her books, coaching, classes, and presentations show writers and artists how to stop feeling disappointed, frustrated, and guilty. She lives in Minneapolis with her spouse and their two agility dogs, Blue and Kelda. Visit
