About
Students from throughout Kentucky and the across the nation have come to learn and practice journalism at Western Kentucky University’s Xposure High School Journalism Workshop, which will host its 37th workshop in June 2022.

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 newsroom, Talisman life and culture magazine, Cherry Creative branded content studio and Student Publications Advertising business consultants.

Xposure is not a camp. We call it a workshop for a reason. During the workshop, students rise early for assignments and activities and work late into the night, every night, reporting stories, capturing images, writing and editing, posting updates and designing presentations.

There is no cost to students attending, as the workshop is funded through grants from Xposure alumni, WKU’s School of Media and WKU Student Publications, as well as news organizations throughout the region.

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.
