Great Hearts Initiatives | 826 New Orleans

Mission

826 New Orleans cultivates and supports the voices of young writers ages 6-18 through creative collaborations with schools and communities.

We believe that confidence in written language is fundamental to self-empowerment and future success.

We believe in providing young writers with space, time, support, and opportunities to publish their work.

We believe that writing is a great equalizer and can be a catalyst for social change.

Whether students are enrolled in a two-hour workshop or a semester-long in-school project, all of our programs end in publication. A rigorous writing process leads to a wide range of high-quality work, from short stories about aliens in outer space celebrating Mardi Gras to personal narratives about overcoming struggle. When a student sees their ideas manifested in a physical publication, they learn that through hard work, determination, and opportunity they are able to turn their ideas into a reality.
