Held at Kansas State University, The Flint Hills Publication Workshop has maintained the same goal throughout it’s more than 50 year history — to prepare publications staffs for the new school year by imparting critical journalistic skills.
Our aim at The Flint Hills Publication Workshop is for you to take home a plan of attack. After this workshop you should feel excited to get the year started off right. You’ll have the tools you’ll need to motivate your staff, take better photos, write better stories and design better publications. We also want to provide a platform for you to start producing your publication over the summer. If you are a yearbook staff, arrive with ideas and leave with a fully developed theme, cover design, opening and inside spreads designed and all ready for finishing touches once you’re back in school. If you work on a newspaper staff, imagine a redesign that will catch the attention of your entire school, and have it finished before you even step back on campus.
We have the best camp instructors around and we hope you choose to elevate your publications by attending our short, fast paced camp to help start your school year off on the right foot.

While you should come to the Flint Hills Publications Workshop ready to work hard, you should also be ready to have lots of fun. We’ve planned team-building activities to ensure that you keep a fresh mind and enthusiastic attitude throughout the workshop. And did we mention we created a new game? The entire camp will battle to become glow-in-the-dark Hunger Games Champion. Come prepared, bring tennis shoes and clothes you can run in. It’s a battle to the death… err, until curfew at least.
On the second night of camp, relax with a refreshing dip in the hotel pool and cool off with famous Call Hall ice cream. As hot as summers are in Kansas, you’ll be eager for this classic tradition. Bring your swimming suit.
