Sydney Breyer (May 4, 1997 - October 7, 2015) passed away during the creation of the 2015 edition of The Agora, so parts of this edition and the whole 2016 edition of Calliope are dedicated to her.

Straight Outta Calliope: Dance to the Muse-Ic

OBJECTIVE: No one knew how to party better than the gods, and what's a party without some music? Our writers chose one of their favorite hits and rewrote the lyrics, creating music even Terpsikhore would be bobbing her head to.


OBJECTIVE: The mundane tasks of our daily lives often seem to pale in comparison to the epics we read. However, that is of course all in how we perceive them.
