Toronto-based writer Lisa Fitterman has worked for newspapers across Canada as a reporter, editor and columnist and as a freelance writer for national and international magazines.

Over the past ten years alone, Lisa has travelled from Mumbai to Moscow to cover a wide variety of stories, from profiles of women in the Russian opposition to the new waves of immigration and increasing racism in countries such as Sweden and France.

Lisa has written a cover story for The Walrus magazine on the corruption scandal in Quebec that won a gold medal in the Politics and Public Interest category at the National Magazine Awards, authored two children’s books and worked on television documentaries about the power of first love and the role that junk science played in the execution of a Texas father found guilty of killing his children.

After having lived for most of her professional life in Montreal, Lisa now makes her home in Toronto, where she lives with her husband, the journalist Julian Sher.
