Point of Origin

This January, Entropy Magazine published another essay by Eric Atkisson ’94. Titled Point of Origin, it revolves around the French explorer Jean Nicolet, Eric’s father, and Eric’s nautical childhood in Green Bay and Door County, Wisconsin. It was the second of his essays to appear in print and the first since he completed a MFA in Creative Writing at George Mason University in May 2019. Eric has also had about a dozen magazine articles and short stories published since 2007. He currently works as a communications and marketing supervisor at the Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia.
