SAN SEBASTIÁN, 1984
Sabina Urraca is a writer and journalist. Born in the Basque Country, she spent her childhood in Tenerife and has lived in Madrid for over a decade. Embracing self-narrative, she feels particularly attracted by immersive, gonzo wordsmithery journalism. Her controversial, straightforward, fiercely personal articles are daily shared through the Internet by hundreds of users, and have made her one of the most distinct and buzziest voices nowadays.
She is the author of the refreshing novel PRODIGAL DAUGHTERS (Las niñas prodigio), published by Fulgencio Pimentel in 2018. Urraca has also participated in the collection TRANQUILAS. HISTORIAS PARA IR SOLAS POR LA NOCHE, along with authors like Marta Sanz, Carme Riera or Gabriela Wiener.
An insurance salesperson, waiter, scriptwriter, announcer, television and advertising copywriter, marijuana cutter, Sabina Urraca writes regularly for Vice Spain and El País, and is widely hailed today as an exciting new voice in Spanish letters.
She is currently writing her second book.
