Over the past decade and a half, Karl Bjorn Erickson has written nearly a hundred articles and essays. His publishing credits include Marylhurst University's new blog, America, The National Catholic Weekly, Catholic Answer's This Rock, Musica Sacra, the Statesman Journal, the Portland Tribune, Seattle Pacific University's Response, Catholic365.com, and many more. His articles explore a wide range of challenging and complex topics, but he especially enjoys writing upon the meeting of the arts and faith.
Karl is also the author of several books: Tristan's Travels, Toupee Mice, and The Blood Cries Out (not a children's book!). He's also fond of experimenting with new eBook formats--e.g. Oregon, My Oregon, A Photographic Journey: The Wallowas. (He describes this series as electronic coffee table books.)
On June 17, 2018, Karl Erickson graduated with honors from Marylhurst University with a BA in English Literature and New Media. Sadly, Marylhurst University will be closing at the end of 2018. This brings a sad, and arguably avoidable, end to more than a century of a rich legacy of education. More details may be found HERE. OregonLive and OPB have also written widely on the closure and its ramifications. He has also made some observations on his blog, Singing in the Wood.
