Karl Erickson is a published author and essayist currently residing in Monmouth, Oregon. Today, he’s exploring poetry and photography as a new focus. While he’s been working for the State of Oregon for more than two decades, he just graduated last June from Marylhurst University with a BA in English Literature and New Media.
