Walter Perkins is a Chicago-based journalist. He is the founding editor of the One Hundred Magazine and has interviewed people from Rosa Parks to Quincy Jones. His work has been featured in The Quill and the Harvard Business Review. Perkins has also taught journalism and media law courses at three universities in the Chicago area at the graduate and undergraduate levels. His first book detailed the history of Groove Phi Groove, a social fellowship started in 1962 as an alternative to mainstream Black fraternities.
His second book – Write Right, Right Now – walks people through the process of writing a book from initial idea creation to budgeting financial resources. Perkins brings his thirty years of experience to bear on questions like conducting interviews, putting a book proposal together, marketing and distribution. Through his company, Information Plus Professional Services, Walter conducts seminars on improving writing skills, making executive and corporate communications more effective, and publishing books, magazines and newsletters.
