Antònia Vicens i Picornell (born 1941 in Santanyí, Balearic Islands) is a Spanish writer in the Catalan language.

Her first published book was a collection of short stories, Banc de fusta . Her novel, 39º a l'ombra, was awarded the Premi Sant Jordi de novel·la prize in 1967. In 1977, she joined the board of the Associació d'Escriptors en Llengua Catalana, serving as vice president for the Balearic Islands.
