Still Waters in a Storm is a one-room schoolhouse, a reading and writing sanctuary for children ages 5-17 in the neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn.

The structure of our meetings is the same in English, Spanish and Latin: children and grown-ups study a text together, each writes something inspired by the text, then they take turns reading their writings out loud while everyone listens in a sacred hush.

The one rule is, “Everyone listens to everyone.”

The simple grace of this ritual changes lives for the better.
