Still Waters, Brooks School’s literary magazine, has a fresh new look. Recently moved online from the old print edition, and sporting a new moniker, the journal has been wildly popular during the past two years. Now, Still Waters moves even farther into the 21st century while holding onto the feel of a more traditional literary journal.

Current Issue

Six-Word Story Contest Winners

The myth is that Ernest Hemingway wrote the best six-word short story ever in response to a challenge from fellow writers:  “For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.” We challenged the students at Brooks to come up with their own six-word stories, and we were not disappointed. After reading almost 60 entries, congratulations to Sophie Hord, Erinn Lee, Rachel Feingold, Kyle Lawrence and Renu Mukherjee for their winning efforts! Read their stories in the current issue, and thanks to all who entered!
