Here are some kind words from writers’ conference faculty, conference organizers, and attendees from Timothy’s recent speaking engagements.
“When I met Tim at a writer’s conference in the fall of 2009, he told me about a writer’s group he had recently organized and invited me to visit. I am still attending this encouraging and knowledgeable group and am now a fellow organizer. We recently joined Word Weavers which has already been a blessing to the group. The group continues to grow where we now have three small group locations. I only see good things happening in this group and I believe it is due to Tim’s great leadership skills and reliance on God.”
Kathy Bruins, Word Weavers of West Michigan co-director
“Tim Burns added thorough knowledge and experience plus his quiet warmth to our writing conference Breathe during his workshop and lunch forum. We, the planning committee, were so pleased that we’ve invited him back for more.”
Cynthia Beach, Breathe Writing Conference co-founder and writer
“I’ve been thankful to God for Tim and the other members of the writers’ group for their suggestions and support, from which I have benefited greatly as a writer. Thanks to you all.”
Bruce Leiter, Word Weavers West Michigan member
“Word Weavers gives me accountability. Others look to me and expect that I have my homework done. As I do the work, I feel a genuine sense of accomplishment. Compatibility – being with like minded people who seek to accomplish similar goals of seeking to please God and writing for His glory . . . Iron sharpens iron – as we get to know one another, we learn from each others’ strengths and weaknesses. . . Sometimes all it takes is a few encouraging words to boost our self esteem and keep on writing! Education & Leadership – Tim and others have put so much energy into making this group work. Education websites, speakers and instructors all have assisted in honing our God-given craft and passion for writing.”
Teresa K. Lasher, Word Weavers West Michigan co-leader
“I have very much appreciated Tim’s gracious, affirming style in encouraging and challenging our writer’s group. Writers are an odd lot. We are quirky, independent, defensive and highly sensitive. He’s shown good leadership by carefully using the proper tool to bring forth each person’s unique gift without causing damage to the package.”
Sharon Ruff, Word Weavers West Michigan member
“Timothy Burns is one of the best organizers of writers in the Midwest.”
Tim Beals, Credo Communications Publisher and Agent
