Author Archive: Salient

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's.
Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

The pot of black. The swirling mass of liquid shadows, clinging to the edges of the container reaching its tiny hands towards her. Leaving not so pretty fingerprints on her pale skin.

It’s a strange thing, to watch somebody die, to contemplate the end of life. I was present when my grandmother passed away; to me, it seemed that she had what you would call ‘a good death’.
