Kali Venable is an innovative journalist who tells stories about the way we live — stories that empower people to engage with their communities and expand their worldview. She is currently looking to fill a need for compelling journalism, where ever it arises.
The young writer and researcher is a recent graduate of The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Journalism. She grew up in Houston, Texas, but spent much of her childhood in the Texas Gulf Coast counties of Jackson and Calhoun.
Kali has worked in copy editing and editorial departments at multiple publications, including Texas Monthly magazine, The Austin Chronicle and Vox Media, Inc., among others.
Kali considers herself to be a naturally curious person. She enjoys living outside of her comfort zone and looking at issues from different perspectives. Her desire to understand the world more deeply led her to work as an internal reporter/communications guru for the school district she grew up in, and as a community outreach intern for a non-profit in rural Nicaragua.
As a journalist, she has experience at both digital and print publications. As a student, she spent extensive time researching national and international social justice issues, the intersection of politics and media, and how the broken journalism model undermines democracy. Kali can promise exhaustive research, clean copy under strict deadlines and a dedication to serving the best interest of the public.
