A Journal of Literature, Art and Culture
Silver Streams is a literary journal which publishes all genres of literature, art and academia though it is mostly dedicated to Modernist and Post-Modernist forms.
Inspired by the existential crisis created by advancements in technology and warfare as well as human nature's struggle to understand its own subjectivity, Modernism and Post-Modernism represent a crossroads in the evolution of society and our place within it.
Though the genres differ in many ways, both forms mark a breakaway from realism and traditional structures in favour of subjective reality and experimental forms which examine the nature of being.
Silver Streams seeks to chronicle both the past and the possible future of these genres by publishing original prose and poetry along with critical essays and artwork.
