About

From prison walls to Amish barns, Rwandan hills and Amazonian jungles, to murder trials and the Stanley Cup final — my career in journalism has been blessed with a wild range of opportunities.

After studying English Lit and Education at Queen’s University, I received a Masters degree in journalism at Carleton University. Carleton led to stints with the CBC, The Canadian Press and the Toronto Star, before I became a senior writer at Sportsnet magazine.

Since it launched in September 2011, the magazine has taken me on journeys to Haiti and through the Arctic, with stops at a few baseball diamonds and hockey rinks along the way. I’ve won gold at the National Magazine Awards for the sports writing and have been a finalist eight times across a range of categories.

My time with Sportsnet has also led to exciting new opportunities in storytelling—including television features and non-fiction book publishing. Sportsnet’s production of Home and Really Far Away: The Boys from Whale Cove was a finalist for Best Sports Program at the Canadian Screen Awards.

The Crazy Game, a memoir by former NHL goalie Clint Malarchuk, which I co-wrote, was published in the fall of 2014 by HarperCollins Canada and is a national bestseller. I also worked with Blue Jays broadcaster Buck Martinez on his bestselling book Change Up, which was published by HarperCollins Canada in spring 2016.

Quinn: The Life of a Hockey Legend, a biography of the late Pat Quinn, was published by Viking Canada in fall 2015. It was longlisted for the 2017 RBC Taylor Price for literary non-fiction, and is a national bestseller.

This site is a small collection of the stories I’ve had the privilege to share. Please contact me if you’re interested in reading more.

I know it’s complicated, but wow, it’s super jarring to hear “Hockey Night in Canada is brought to you by Huawei”, this week.

Would have been cooler if @jayme_poisson had made it into the Queen’s alumni mag — but for a McGill grad, this is pretty neat. https://t.co/f27Mms06SC

Jayme Poisson, BA’06, on making the switch from award-winning investigative reporter at the Toronto Star to host of the new CBC News daily podcast Front Burner https://t.co/C54jNQVDRq https://t.co/HKvULPk8Mw

This is a really nice story from @mirtle on Ema Matthews.

Moms are the best. https://t.co/8Nkp7x3XE0

This was a fun chat. Jay’s book is deep and complicated and full of visceral passion.

Also, he really loves the Habs.

Highly recommend it (as an obvious companion to Bower, of course.)

Jay Baruchel ( @BaruchelNDG) stopped by Toronto Reference Library's Appel Salon to discuss his memoir Born Into It with @RobsonDan. Watch now ➡️ https://t.co/W1UvpVdXe9 https://t.co/xXkLSQ5W6J

Nice look at @FrontBurnerCBC from the New York Times as one of the daily news podcasts that you absolutely need to check out.

If you’re looking for a short, thoughtful chat about current affairs from a Canadian perspective every day, this is for you.
