Big Class's mission is to cultivate and support the voices of New Orleans' writers ages 6-18 through creative collaborations with schools and communities.
This fall, Big Class is coming to classrooms throughout New Orleans with two new workshops: Good Troublemakers and Spooky Stories.
Shop our newest publications! In the 2016-2017 school year, we published two perfect-bound books: a collection of personal histories by 11th graders entitled History Between These Folds and a selection of letters about the 2017 presidential election I Want You to Know Something About Me.
When Big Class becomes 826 New Orleans in 2018, we will open the New Orleans Haunting Supply Co., a storefront supplying good and services for the supernaturals of the Crescent City.
Our annual literary Halloween fundraiser A Dark and Stormy Night is a spirited evening of cocktails, costumes, and ghost stories–and it's back for its third year on October 5th.
