Are you a journalist with a story to share, but it didn’t quite make it past the editor? Something funny, tragic, or simply just plain interesting? Or are you someone who’s interested in hearing the behind-the-scene journalism stories?

Inspired by the Reporter Slam in Berlin, Talk Media* is hosting a Live Journalism Open Mic and we’d love you to join! Come on out to the Imperial Pub (54 Dundas St E) on March 28th from 7pm. This event is a Pay What You Can ($10 suggested) to all who would like to attend.

Everyone is welcome to attend and cheer on our journalism storytellers- there will be a few fun prizes for the stories that receive the boisterous audience applause :)

Not sure what story to tell?

  • How about that fascinating or hilarious occurrence during an interview that you couldn’t really write about?
  • Or a difficult reporting decision you had to make that still stays in your mind?
  • Or the story you’ve always wanted to pitch but you just can’t find the right place or time for it?

We’d love to see you there regardless of whether you're telling a story or not! Grab a drink, sit back and enjoy a night of tales from the beat.

*Talk Media is a Toronto based company whose team is mostly built of journalists and other artists who experiment with live storytelling and performance. To learn more, visit or follow us on IG @talkmediaca
