Apply Now, Mountain Workshop

As leaves fall annually, Western Kentucky University’s Mountain Workshops draw a team of dedicated teachers and determined learners to a small Kentucky town, where together they explore the richness of community, the beauty of landscape, and the possibilities and challenges of visual storytelling.


The 37th annual Workshops will take place Oct. 16-21, 2012 in the city of Henderson, Ky. Please visit our web site at http://www.mountainworkshops.org and visit the application page to submit your information and register.

The Workshops are three workshops in one. A participant can select from one of the three to suit their current need of visual development. The amount of seats we offer in each category are limited.

The Photojournalism Workshop focuses on still photography, as coaches and participants explore individual character, the give and take of relationships, the deeply-felt sense of belonging to a place and the pride of participating in a shared heritage.

The Picture Editing Workshop draws on the design sensibilities and electronic publishing expertise of its coaches to help participants learn to weave photographs and text together into memorable narratives.

The Multimedia Workshop challenges participants to gather still images, record sound and shoot video, and then use cutting-edge digital and online tools to spin all these threads into stories that captivate.

These Workshops have been defined as life-altering by participants who have attended over the past four decades and our rich tradition of excellence in training still continues to this day. Participants have moved on in their careers to be leaders in our industry and often return to help us every fall. We hope you decide that this opportunity is one that you cannot pass on.
