Sarah Fulford is the editor-in-chief of Toronto Life, an influential monthly magazine that publishes award-winning feature writing and expert service journalism. She began her career at Elm Street magazine and joined the Toronto Life staff in 1999. After occupying various roles, she was promoted to editor-in-chief in January 2008. At the time, she was 33 years old and was the first woman ever to run Toronto Life. In 2010, Fulford successfully overhauled Toronto Life with a redesign that a reporter for The Globe and Mail called “smart,” “nuanced,” and “a clear improvement.”
Fulford is a graduate of The University of King’s College in Halifax and spent a year after graduation studying at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. She has won two Canadian National Magazine Awards for her writing (and many more for pieces she has edited). Over the years, she has contributed articles to publications such as The Globe and Mail, The National Post, and The Walrus. She sits on the board of the Toronto Public Library (TPL) Foundation. In 2012, she co-founded “The New Collection,” the TPL’s young professional program. She also sits on the Humber Journalism Advisory Board. Fulford lives in Toronto with her husband and two children.
