Toronto Star intern reporters are expected to be keen observers of our city, interested in the people, places and events that make this a vibrant, complex community in which to live.
In that spirit, please write us a 50-word pitch on something you’ve seen – and that others may not know about – that you think would make a great story.

please be sure it is attached.
