The first La Garba short story contest has already taken place.

Nine stories which will be published in a compilation book have been selected, six written in Catalan and three in Spanish.

As the contest was announced, all the stories have a connection to Barceloneta. All the stories cover a wide time span of the neighbourhood’s existence. From a narrative that takes place in the early twentieth century, in the Barceloneta of decades ago that many neighbours will remember, ending with the most rabid present, that of a neighbourhood under siege by the tourist pressure.

  • “La dona invisible i la mala mar”, by Miquel Riba.
