Argentina/ USA


Lucía Benavides is a writer and journalist based in Barcelona, Spain. Originally from Argentina, she was raised in Texas from a young age. Her writing has appeared in Literary Hub, LA Review of Books, The Washington Post’s The Lily and The Atlantic, among other places. She is the Spain correspondent for National Public Radio (NPR) and PRI's The World.


During my stay at Faberllull in Olot, I plan to work on a novel based on my migration journeys from Argentina to the U.S. to Spain, drawing parallels with my ancestors' journeys from various European countries to Argentina. Through these stories, I will explore what the concept of "home” means for migrants, how the feeling of not belonging to any one place can affect our identity, and how – in an attempt to have some sense of rootedness – we often look for “home” in unexpected places.
