About the CityLife Writers

All of the writers that worked on CityLife graduated from the University of East London, and studied the BA (Hons) Creative & Professional Writing degree, or the MA Writing: Imaginative Practice degree. They all show exceptional talent in their work.


Samuel Hardy

samuel-hardySamuel had two dreams growing up in his small Cheshire town: telling stories and not living in his small town. Now a graduate of UEL, he’s proud to say he briefly lived both those dreams. He has a passion for horror, history, fantasy and contemporary, with LGBT+ and sensitive issues; his belief is that humanity makes the best monster but also the best hero; and his greatest achievements will be scaring the crap out of you or making you cry (or both).

Jack Pascoe



Jack Pascoe is a performance poet, creative nonfiction writer and haiku enthusiast. He has won many UK poetry slams and appeared in several independent publications. For more information go to my Writer Page on Facebook.


Suzanne Wilson




Suzanne is a professional coffee drinker and historical fiction enthusiast. Aspiring novelist working the starving bohemian aesthetic.



Nicola Peard


Nicola is a science fiction writer, culture theory fanatic and champion procrastinator based in East London. In between writing, reading and strong opinion having, Nicola works in academic support at UEL with arts and creative industries students. Sometimes there’s hair, sometimes there’s not. A bit like life, really.
