"I have worked with Timothy Liebe on a number of writing/recording projects in the past, enough to appreciate his range, approach, talent, and patience when advising writers. We were part of a company that created and recorded original radio comedy and drama. The programs aired throughout the five boroughs of New York and in L.A., and finally on National Public Radio.
"There I saw that Tim provided feedback and critques for all of our writers, from those less experienced to those who had varying degrees of experience as writers. His work with our writers included plot, voice (since audio differs from movies/television), character development, and economy. The company was good-sized and we had other writer/editors (I was head writer for the company for six years), but Tim was best at clarity and patience. He also proposed and inaugurated a change from our normal mystery/thriller format in the form of a holiday special. There again he helped writers with voice, economy, and timing.
"Later in his career Tim worked for various print publications in the computer magazine and print magazine arena. He was an editor for two of them, dealing largely with writers outside the company proper. I was one of those outside contributors. In addition to his feedback on my own books (I had come to respect his skills with the radio company), he also helped me and other writers submitting to the magazines that employed him. His chief employment at these jobs was guiding writers to bring their articles into line with magazine standards.
"As an editor/advisor, he is patient. He also does not overwhelm writers with feedback or try to take the work over. I have worked in publishing in one form or another since the 1990's. I can say without exaggeration that Tim Liebe is one of the most professional at giving critiques of other writers' work. Newcomers will be well served by his help."
