Even in its earliest days, with just a few students and even fewer teachers, Brooks has nurtured its young writers. From the earliest editions of The Archbishop to the more focused Bishop literary journal to the most recent Bishop (revived in 1999 by an eager student and including art as well as writing), Brooks students have always written prolifically and shared their work generously.
Still Waters is the latest incarnation in the long history of literary journals at Brooks. In its first year, more than 30 different student writers contributed material, including award winning poets, first-time writers and filmmakers. The Still Waters page became one of the most popular pages on the Brooks School website, and each new edition was eagerly anticipated and discussed. Still Waters looks to build on this great success and expand its scope heading into its second year.
