The Whys and the Wherefores...
Now in its fourth year, Barcelona INK is a literary magazine which publishes a range of original writing from new and established writers and poets connected to Barcelona in some way, either through their work or their residence, here we could mention poets such as Philip Levine and Alan Jenkins, or writers such as PJ Kavanagh and Jerome Charyn, to mention just a few. It also publishes translations of Catalan writers and poets we like, such as Joan Margarit and Rosa Leveroni, as well as essays and articles about the city. The magazine runs regular interviews with writers who have either lived here or who are passing through, Rupert Thomson is an example of the former and Ian Rankin, an example of the latter. Originally set up as a quarterly magazine, it is now more or less bi-annual, or is produced to specifically coincide with local festivals or issues on special themes. Above all, it is a labour of love. A love for writing, and a love for Barcelona. But that doesn't mean we publish things that glorify the city. Barcelona INK tries to put the city's entrails in full view of the public via fiction and poetry, while at the same time giving a wider voice to writers, both local and estranged.
