Writers

Station Road currently has a team of five writers, all of which are currently living in Manchester.

Masooda Ali, Safoora Ali, Susan Cattan, Sarah Cassidy and Adam Williams.

MASOODA ALI

Masooda Ali works as a HR professional during the day.Masooda Ali

By night she thinks of ideas for Station Road and about what she will eat the next day.

She likes reading, in particular books with pictures.

She has never had work published and Station Road is her first foray into writing for public consumption.

Her favourite colour is blue and her favourite food is potatoes. Neither of these influences her writing.

During this time she got her first professional broadcasting credit on BBC Radio 4 Extra satirical show ‘Newsjack’.

Safoora Ali

A born and bred Mancunian who loves reading and writing. She also loves taking pictures and feels fortunate that people pay her to do something she loves. She can be found at the cinema and theatre often.

Writing on Station Road is the first time she has has her work listened to by the public without using an alias.

She loves awful music and glass bottles. She hates people who don’t use grammar correctly.

She is currently playing “Imola” in Station Road and would love to do more acting.
