Young New Orleanians evolve through creative writing, and Big Class is a program that engages with this need for youthful expression. When I taught, I observed how enthusiastic students were to dream up the potential zombie apocalypse in their neighborhood. I continued to see my students' personalities mature and develop through the Panther Pride Press newspaper club. Students wrote about topics from how to survive state testing to their historic trip to Selma, AL. Through these in-school and after-school support, Big Class and its volunteers develop writing skills in New Orleans students. More focused writing clubs such as screen and journalistic writing enable young writers to experience variety in style and topical interests. Donating to this fundraiser will help build a fun, creative youth writing center. This center will inspire the young writers who use it as physical creative outlet and house future Big Class programming.
