Sandra Bartlett is a freelance journalist based in Toronto, Canada. As a freelancer she knows how to find ways to do stories with few resources, drawing on her years working with public radio in Canada and the U.S. where doing stories that require overseas travel or many months of time required creativity and collaboration.
Recent work includes the CBC podcast Someone Knows Something, radio documentaries for Revealnews.org, and a term as Asper Visiting Professor at the University of British Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, teaching investigative journalism. She has reported on health, human rights, law and environmental issues during her years with CBC Radio in Canada and NPR in Washington. Bartlett has reported, produced and edited radio documentaries for more than 20 years. She has won national and international awards for her work, including a Michener Award, a Science Writers award and a special citation from the Daniel Pearl Awards.
Bartlett has travelled extensively – throughout North America and Europe, in Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Brazil and Guantanamo Bay; and collaborated with journalists around the world in radio, TV, and online, including the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
