Each student will be placed on a team that will work together as a "staff" to produce print, video, and audio content. Professionals from The Seattle Times and the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University will serve as coaches. Together, the students and coaches will discuss topics ranging from the evolving field of journalism and developing job opportunities to how journalists are responding to ongoing issues of racial reckoning, the global coronavirus pandemic and the push for equity and social justice on all community fronts.

    KEMPA Summer Journalism Workshop
    July 26, 2020 - July 29, 2020 Kettle Moraine Press Association and Marquette University Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    Application deadline: July 1, 2020

    The Kettle Moraine Press Association wants you to join us for a summer camp experience that legends are made of and where stories come alive. The 2020 camp will be held from July 26-29. ​The Kettle Moraine Press Association’s Summer Journalism Workshop is rich with tradition and excellence. Our four-day workshop provides students with one of the best educational experiences in the nation, with some of the best instructors. On top of that, we firmly believe the “camp” experience is equally important. Our KEMPA Kampers have a blast getting to know one another in our unique house system and challenges. KEMPA Kampers stay in dorms on Marquette’s campus in the heart of Milwaukee, which provides our camp with access to a number of opportunities for storytelling, team building, and more. It also means that we are a short distance from many forms of transportation if you are coming in from far away. We have some of the best instructors in the country, with one of the strongest curriculums. Our curriculum is tracked and provides students with a variety of learning experiences geared toward each student’s ability level and experience. Our instructors develop the courses to provide for a wide variety of skills and interest levels, all in an effort to make every KEMPA Kamper the most successful he or she can be.
