Jordi Galceran Ferrer (Catalan pronunciation: [ʒɔrði ɣəɫsəˈɾan]) (born in Barcelona, March 5, 1964) is a Catalan playwright, screenwriter and translator, known internationally for his play El mètode Grönholm (The Grönholm Method. 2003). He writes in Catalan.

Galceran studied Catalan Philology at the University of Barcelona and started to write theatrical plays in 1988.

In 1995, with Paraules encadenades (Words in Chains) he won the 20th Born Theatre Award, and in 1996, the Critic's Award Serra d'Or for best work in the Catalan language. His play Dakota (1995) received the Ignasi Iglesias award.
