Dulcie Leimbach was until recently the director of publications for UNA-USA, where she migrated the print version of The InterDependent to the World Wide Web, turning the magazine into a modern, well-read entity in the UN and world affairs community. Under her tenure, the online version of the ID featured such writers as Barbara Crossette, Irwin Arieff, Herve Couturier, Evelyn Leopold, Stephen Schlesinger, Mark Turner, Thomas G. Weiss, Karen Freeman, Samir Sanbar, Mirva Lempiainen, Helmut Volger, Jeff Laurenti, Laura Seay, Laura Trevelyan and Warren Hoge. The range of topics was enormous, from ocean debris to vaccinations in Congo, from dining at the German mission to the UN to arrests by the International Criminal Court. Leimbach was responsible for assigning and editing the articles and working as the photo editor in addition to promoting the magazine and selling ads. She previously worked for more than two decades at The New York Times editing, among others, Pulitzer Prize winning columnists and the Nobel laureate Paul Krugman. Her articles appeared in the following sections: Op-Ed, Book Review, Sunday Magazine, Arts & Leisure, Weekend, Education Life, Real Estate and Business. She has also published fiction in literary journals and was a fellow at the Yaddo Corporation in 1987. Leimbach has a journalism degree from the University of Colorado and an M.F.A. from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, N.C. She taught newswriting and reporting at Hofstra University and was a guest lecturer on op-ed writing at the Bronx High School of Science. She lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., with her family.
