October 28 Speaker

Criticism and rejection letters never help a writer — or do they? What can you learn from critique? Speaker, Annie England Noblin will address these issues at the October 28 meeting.

Annie teaches ​English and Communications for Arkansas State University in Mountain Home. She has an M.A. in Creative Writing from Missouri State University. She has pitched five women’s fiction novels to HarperCollins Publishers.

Her debut novel ​, Sit, Stay, Speak, ​tells the unforgettable story of a rescue dog that helps a struggling young outsider make peace with the past. “A cozy read that’s full of dogs, romance, and small-town charm,” says Kirkus Reviews. The love of a dog can change your life. ​Her third novel, Pupcakes, will be released on October 10.

Annie lives with her husband and six-year-old son in West Plains, MO. When she is not writing or teaching, she spends her free time working with animal shelters across the country to save homeless dogs.​ ​
