7 Reasons to Write with Me This Summer


  1. You’ll feel great about the progress you make with your writing and your writing habits!
  2. I’ll read and respond to ten pages of your writing when you’re a participant in any of my Loft Summer Classes: Writing Habit (at Open Book and at Oakdale Library) and Writing Resistance (at Eagan Wescott Library).
  3. You’ll meet other writers facing the same challenges and discover that accountability and accomplishment love company far more than misery ever could.
  4. You’ll get 1 hour of one-on-one coaching with me when you travel to Madeline Island School of the Arts to join me in creating Instant Fiction. Your coaching is a $95 value and will focus on what you’re most interested in exploring.
  5. Prizes! You have the option to “bet” on yourself in the Writing Habit class. If you bet and you meet your weekly goals, you get a prize!
  6. You’ll have an unassailable excuse for getting out of those tedious drives to the lake where you spend the whole weekend cooking, cleaning, slapping mosquitoes and cursing the outboard motor, lawnmower and writing project that just won’t start. 
  7. I’m a great teacher! I attract great students and together we make classes engaging and fun. Don’t take my word for it; here’s what former students say: 
  • “The Writing Habit literally revolutionized my writing life. I produced more new writing than I have in months. In addition, I’ve started a long-term revision project, began a major overhaul in my writing space and re-established a daily writing regimen I ‘lost’ about two years ago.”– Tara McDaniel, Writer
  • “Rosanne taught me to make writing a habit, and I write every day now, and have for two years. Writer’s block is not an issue anymore. Rosanne also helped me to discover that what I really wanted was to write a novel. Though I have had success with essays and articles, I am now working on the novel. She helped me discover my heart. I would recommend her classes and services to anyone.” – Eileen Peterson, Published Writer and Aspiring Novelist
  • “This class (Writer’s Resistance) really inspires students to use emotion and logic in order to dig deep and bring back joy that writing can bring to your life. I learned how to recognize what stops me from writing and take positive steps to overcome it.” – Kris Lawson, Writer and Editor
  • “I have a sense of empowerment for my writing that I didn’t have before – a new energy and understanding of my fears and how to resist paralysis and self-doubt.” – Cindy Nehrbass, Loft Master Track Candidate
