The Kalish Workshop

The Kalish Workshop will be holding its next workshop June 16-21, 2013, at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

The Kalish is an inspirational and intense five-day experience in editing visual storytelling. It is designed to benefit anyone who touches photography with a narrative storyline for online and print.

Professionals from varying backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including radio, non-profit organizations, traditional newsrooms, designers, freelance photographers, and editors who work directly with image sequencing, audio, and video storytelling. Graduate students and educators also benefit.

This five-day storytelling workshop is taught by Emmy and Pulitzer Prize-winning editors including Brian Storm, Geri Migielicz, Sue Morrow, Kenny Irby, Mark Edelson, Randall Greenwell, and Scott Sines. 

Stan Kalish was a daring, innovative picture editor at the Milwaukee Journal from 1937 to 1950, when few newspapers had picture editors and it took guts and vision to achieve recognition. With the University of Missouri's Professor Clifton Edom, Kalish wrote a book on picture editing that became the Bible of the picture editing community and was the only guide until recent years. Kalish died in 1985 and his widow, Betsy Kalish, chose to honor his memory with a contribution to the National Press Photographers Foundation (http://nppf.org), making this workshop financially possible.
