Why "egg"?

A quick answer would be that our magazine is the baby sibling of Robert Morris [University]'s excellent newspaper, the Eagle. A longer answer would take note that  an egg is where something begins. In the poems, stories, essays, and artwork that follows, you'll see the beginnings of dozens of promising artistic lives. Maybe a few of them will even spark the beginning of something within your own mind.

"A good book

may have three openings

entirely dissimilar and inter-related

only in the prescience

of the author,

or for that matter one hundred

times as many endings."

- Flann O'Brien
