Jarcha Español

Jarcha is the word we chose to name our space: Jarcha Español, referring to the traditional song in Mozarabic language with which the educated poets of Al Andalus, Arabs and Hebrews, closed other longer compositions called moaxajas.

Jarchas symbolize, from the linguistic and literary point of view, the multiculturalism existing in Spain during the eight centuries of Islamic presence, and are considered the first manifestation of Spanish literature.

For this reason, an online platform specialized in communication and training in Spanish, where we could combine the cultural diversity of our country with the Spanish language as a vehicle, could not be called otherwise.

Spanish students, friends of letters and lovers of the history of a country crossroads of civilizations be welcome to Jarcha Español.

But we also confessed addicts to writing, which prompted us to create the Asociación de Escritores de Vigo Haberlos, haylos, in 2017, with the main objective of promoting written production in the city of Vigo and serving as a meeting point for novel authors in our city, through gatherings, presentations and participations in differents literary events, where literature shares prominence with other artistic manifestations such as music, dance and dramatic arts. And as we do not forget that writing is a continuous process of learning and overcoming,  we also have interesting courses and workshops on expression and literary creation.
