Big Class's mission is to cultivate and support the voices of New Orleans' young writers through creative collaborations with school and communities


What's New?

Big Class Projects are collaborations with passionate teachers and their talented students on ambitious writing projects. Big Class is now accepting proposals for this Fall's projects

The Big Class Youth Advisory Council brings together creative youth from around New Orleans to develop as writers, work with professionals, and help steer Big Class. We're currently accepting applications for this year's council.

A Dark and Stormy Night returns on October 20 for its second year. Join us for a spirited evening benefitting our free programs for New Orleans youth ages 6-18.

"Big Class is not just a writing program. It's like a movement. Kids' voices are getting heard"--Akilah, age 13
