Xposure High School Journalism Workshop

Video highlights from the 2019 Xposure Journalism Workshop Video Preview


High school students from Kentucky and throughout the nation have come to learn and practice journalism at Western Kentucky University’s Xposure Journalism Workshop. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we have canceled the 37th Xposure workshop, which was set for June, and will return in Summer 2021.

Xposure is a highly selective workshop hosted by WKU Student Publications and the WKU School of Media. Students who participate in Xposure show an interest in journalism and come to the workshops from a variety of backgrounds, including those under-represented in U.S. newsrooms.

The 12 students selected for the Xposure stay on campus and work in the state-of-the-art newsroom of the award-winning College Heights Herald and WKUHerald.com, Talisman magazine and WKUTalisman.com,  Cherry Creative and Student Publications Advertising.

There is no cost to students attending, as the workshop is funded through grants from news organizations and Canon USA. Alumni of WKU’s Xposure workshops fill newsrooms throughout the country, from Washington to Florida to New York and places in between. They help ensure that news gatherers at media outlets mirror the diverse communities they serve.

For more information, contact Chuck Clark, workshop director, at Chuck.Clark@wku.edu.
