Emma Hamlett – CollectedEmma Hamlett took out a £25,000 loan to open Collected, an independent bookshop specialising in work written by women. Describing herself as a “Covid cliché”, Emma exited stage left from her career as a museum curator in 2020 and began to explore what else might be possible, realising in the process that   there was no getting away from books.

“At Collected, we simply love books and reading – and talking books and reading. We’re also passionate about championing work by female writers, much of which – through imbalance and bias in publishing, literary journalism, and prize giving – has historically been overshadowed and overlooked.”
