If you download the collection of short stories, you will get the collection of the Iwith.org Third Literary Contest. This means that you will have the sum of all the short stories already selected in our Iwith.org 2009 Contest.

Iwith.org is a non-profit organization that believes and promotes information and communication technologies as tools for solidarity and progress in society. A way of achieving this is by calling out people from different parts of the world whose wish is to express themselves by writing and sharing their books virtually.

Thanks to the contest, technology is seen as a means of support for publishing and spreading the work of dozens of creators as well as bringing into contact persons and ideas. Every year, when the World Book Day is close to celebration on April 23rd, Iwith.org holds the Literary Contest, whose main objective is to reduce the digital gap, therefore showing that the internet is a way of disseminating culture, and that it is accessible to everyone. At the same time, the winner of the contest is the book that records more downloads.

In this 2009 edition, the books were released on the internet. A clear example is the text of Katheryn Johana García Pacheco from Bolívar, in Cartagena, Colombia, whose book had the most downloads and as such, was the winner of the contest.

Katheryn is a young student from Colombia whose aim is to combine animation with culture. To win in this contest gives encouragement and represents an open door in which to believe that everything is possible. “I always wanted to be part of contests of this kind, and Iwith.org gave me the opportunity, for I did not doubt. I dream of many things, but what I expect the most is that my dreams come true. I want to create my own animation studio together with some friends, make our own animé series, always based on the books that I write", said Katheryn.

Besides, the jury awarded an honorable mention to the story of Yuna Inma Llavería Todó, from Tarragona, Spain, a girl affected by muscular dystrophy that have worked hard in order to present her story, entirely written thanks to Xarxa Òmnia telecentres network.


Anyone can download the book on Bubok in PDF format for free, or in paper format paying an extra printing cost.
