Sadia Khatri

Former Papercuts Reportage Editor



Before plunging into the world of writing, Sadia’s dream was to secure a Ph.D. in astrophysics. She has since worked as a lab rat, a blackjack dealer, an archivist and a reporter – in Massachusetts, Lahore and Kathmandu. Needless to stay, she can’t stick to one place (or thing).

After college, she moved back to Karachi, where she works as a journalist and freelance writer in between running a local feminist collective called Girls At Dhabas. She is a Reportage editor at Papercuts.

Her writing and photography have appeared in several publications in South Asia and abroad, and she writes regularly for The Friday Times. She is interested in developing local creative communities through sustainable models, and is likely to call ad-hoc writing and photography meetups in whatever city she might be.

Sadia is currently working on a narrative non-fiction project that traces the life and writing of the late Kashmiri poet, Agha Shahid Ali, and increasingly finds herself interested in translation work, archiving, and poetry.
