Still Waters

Brooks School literary journal Still Waters aims to provide a forum for the writers and poets in the Brooks student community. In these pages, you will find poetry, memoir, and short fiction — and maybe even pieces that defy categorization.

The writing community at Brooks is vibrant and active. Still Waters also sponsors public readings of student work in the Brooks School Writing Center and writing contests throughout the year.
