Become a Big Classmate. Volunteer with our young writers. Sign up here.


Big Class cultivates and supports the voices of New Orleans' young writers through creative collaborations with schools and communities.

We run a writing studio on St. Claude Ave. in the 9th Ward neighborhood that hosts free workshops and homework help, and work with schools and teachers to enrich student writing experiences through publishing and volunteer support.  Our work is directed towards students experiencing literacy with its highest potential in mind- as a means of communication and expression.
