Hi! My name is Linda Perkins and I am a freelance writer. Thanks for visiting my site!
As you will see, I am a writer-of-all-trades, with a portfolio that encompasses news writing, feature articles, devotionals, advertising and public relations. The portfolio section of this site is out of date and is being updated, so please feel free to contact me for recent clips!
I began my career as a journalist covering lifestyle and arts & entertainment for the Arlington Citizen-Journal, a division of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. I then transitioned into advertising and PR, developing an expertise in Internet marketing and content development, working with numerous software companies and major brands such as Compaq and eRealty.com.
After 25 years in marketing management and consulting, primarily in the business-to-business space, I returned to my roots as a journalist and feature writer. I currently write for local and national publications including Christianity Today, the Good News Network, the Houston Chronicle, Postcards magazine and the Navasota Examiner. I also work with a select number of corporate clients and have a personal blog, Spring Sight, which is designed to give hope to those living with chronic illness. I am an active member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and a past member of the American Marketing Association, International Association of Business Communicators, and Public Relations Society of America.
My goal is to merge my experience in business with my passion for human interest stories, in order to bring value to community newspapers, magazines, and corporations with compelling stories to share.
I would love the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss your writing needs.
All the best,
