Monday, April 17, 2017

The Marshall Writers' Guild announce that Dr. Sam C. Dyer will speak at their annual workshop on Saturday, May 6, from 9 a.m to noon, at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Marshall.

Dr. Dyer received his GED in 1974, his Bachelor of Science degree at Central Missouri State University, his master's degree at Eastern New Mexico University, and his Ph.D. at the University of Tennessee in 1991. He is a tenured associate professor of communication at Southern Missouri State University, in Springfield, and teaches the senior and graduate level courses in public relations. He has published in "Public Relations Quarterly," "Public Relations Review," "Journal of Public Relations Research," and many others. He is also a visual and musical artist specializing in pen and ink drawings, water color and traditional musical arts.

He is the son of Marshall's Samuel C. Dyer Sr., a.k.a. Dyer the Flyer, and Guild member Sharon Eiker. He lives in Springfield with his spouse, Trish, and has two daughters, Sophia and Synthia, and three grandchildren.

Dr. Dyer's topic for the workshop, "Trends in Issues Management," is intended to provide guidance to non-profit groups on how to attract young members. Dr. Dyer believes learning how to spot trends in our culture can really help in the creative writing process.
