2015 Summer Workshops

Sponsored by the School of Journalism & Broadcasting


Xposure Journalism Workshop

June 6 - 14, 2015

For 32 years, high school students from throughout Kentucky and the region have

come to learn and do journalism at Western Kentucky University's Journalism Workshop. 

These students have shown an interest in journalism and came to the workshops with

backgrounds under-represented in U.S. newsrooms. Some lacked the financial resources

to attend journalism workshops. The 2015 Xposure High School Journalism Workshop

 hosted by the School of Journalism & Broadcasting at WKU will continue that tradition.

The alumni of these workshops fill newsrooms throughout the country, helping to ensure

that the news gatherers at media outlets mirror the diverse communities they serve.

Registration Deadline: Friday, April 24, 2015
