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.
The Pizza Poetry Project celebrates National Poetry Month and the power of youth voices by publishing poems by New Orleans’ young writers onto pizza boxes.
From beignets to Ruby Bridges, Homer Plessy to crawfish, pelicans to magnolias, this book is filled with students' ideas of new monuments for our city—monuments for all people.
Construction of the 826 New Orleans Youth Writing Center is in full swing! When we open on April 27th, the Center will allow us to double the students we serve annually through our innovative approach to literacy.
Big Class offers free, high-quality creative writing programs to over 1,500 students annually, made possible by your generous support.
