From March to May 2018, the selected authors writing in Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian and Montenegrin languages spent a month in Kvarner – each author in their separate location – discovering the attractions of the area. Each of these authors was given the task to write a short story relating to the location in which they stayed. The programme selector was the writer Željka Horvat Čeč (HR), and the authors were selected with the syntagm the port of diversity in mind, which represents Rijeka 2020 – the European Capital of Culture.
