Sara Collins on Una Marson

The Essay

Trailblazing Jamaican broadcaster Una Marson is rightly celebrated for being the BBC's first black producer and founding an innovative radio programme. But why has her own poetry been neglected? Author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton, and herself no stranger to the airwaves, Sara Collins goes in search of Marson's voice.75 years ago, the revolutionary Caribbean Voices strand was established on the BBC's Overseas Service. Every week for over a decade, it gave exposure to emerging writers from the region such as Sam Selvon, Derek Walcott and VS Naipaul - many for the first time. Delving into the BBC's Written Archives, five writers explore five important literary figures who contributed to the programme throughout the 1940s and 50s. The result is part archival treasure hunt, part cultural history and part personal reflection on the people behind the landmark institution. Producer: Ciaran Bermingham

The Process Behind a Project with Sara Collins from Sister & Kin

The Creative Productive Podcast

In this episode I sat down with Sara Collins Ethical Production Consultant and the creative productive human behind the ethical fashion brand Sister and Kin. As an ethical production consultant she knows how important it is to relax into the process of a project and take it slow - it's not exactly an industry where things happen quickly and combined with covid her project has been a long time in the making. Often when we pursue a project we focus only on the result but relaxing into the process and is a great way to take some of the stress away. Sara's calm practical approach to the process is something we can all learn from. We also discuss the importance of building confidence so that you can embark on a big project  and trust the process and your ability to see something through to the end. If you have your own big project you're working towards I hope this episode helps you to enjoy the process and cultivate some calm. Make sure you're following me on Instagram to see what I'm doing and stay up to date with when spaces open up!

Let's talk shop with Sara Collins, ethical production consultant and brand owner of Sister and Kin

Let's Talk Shop

In episode 2 of Let’s talk shop, I speak all things ethical and sustainable with Sara Collins, an ethical production consultant and brand owner of fashion brand Sister and Kin. We talk about what it means to be an ethical and sustainable business and how we have to choose what is important to us as brand owners to prioritise first and Sara shares lots of tips that you can use to be more confident in your sourcing. It’s so important to talk about this as it can be both scary and overwhelming to create a brand in line with your values and lifestyle. Even though we want to do it all at once, this is not always possible and it’s important to remember that it’s better to do something well and have a plan for how you can do more in the future than to do nothing at all. Sara has seven years of experience working one-to-one with certified Fairtrade manufacturers around the world and have brought many collections of sustainable fashion, jewellery and homeware products to the European market. She now offers help, advice, and support to independent business owners who want to find social enterprises and local initiatives to work with. Sara is passionate about building partnerships with your manufacturers and helping brands navigate around the world of ethical manufacturing. She also has her own ethical fashion brand which celebrates artisan craft and skill, creating fashion slowly and mindfully. For Sara, it's important to understand that as a brand owner she has an impact and it’s important to make it a positive one. You can find all the links to connect with Sara below.

‘This Mournable Body’: Tsitsi Dangarembga and Sara Collins

London Review Bookshop Podcast

Zimbabwean novelist, playwright and filmmaker Tsitsi Dangarembga presented her latest novel, the Booker-shortlisted This Mournable Body (Faber). The third in a trilogy which began with Nervous Conditions and continued with The Book of Not, This Mournable Body tells the ongoing story of Tambudzai and her struggles with patriarchy and the legacy of colonialism as she tries to make her way, on her own terms, in 1990s Harare. Dangarembga has for many years been as involved in politics as in literature and film (for her all three are intimately connected), and has served as education secretary for the Movement for Democratic Change. She is currently awaiting trial in connection with her role in peaceful anti-corruption protests in Zimbabwe, charges which have led many prominent writers around the world to leap to her defence.Dangarembga was in conversation with Sara Collins, author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton, a gothic romance set in Georgian London which combines elements of Bildungsroman, crime fiction and slave narrative with a healthy dose of righteous anger.This event was held in partnership with Faber Members.

#1 - Sara Collins

Drinks With Nick

Sara Collins is the author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton, winner of the Costa First Novel Award in 2019.  I mix up a special cocktail for this incredible debut, looking for something that complements the novel's setting, Jamaica and London in the 1820s.  Then we take a deep dive into this "beautiful and haunting tale about one woman’s fight to tell her story.  The Confessions of Frannie Langton leads you through laudanum-laced dressing rooms and dark-as-night back alleys, into the enthralling heart of Georgian London.""Wide Sargasso Sea meets Beloved meets Alias Grace...deep diving, elegant."  —Margaret Atwood"Dazzlingly original."  —The Times
