Ana Luísa Amaral wins the Queen Sofia Prize for Ibero-American Poetry

The Spanish National Heritage announced the decision of this prize, endowed with 42,100 euros, attributed by this institution and by the University of Salamanca.

According to the Spanish agency EFE, this award is the most important recognition of poetry in Spanish and Portuguese, which aims to reward the entire poetic work of a living author.

Ana Luísa Amaral becomes the third Portuguese author to receive the award, after Sophia de Mello Breyner (2003) and Nuno Júdice (2013), and the fourth Portuguese-speaking writer to be distinguished, in a list that also includes the Brazilian João Cabral de Melo Neto (1994).

Born in Lisbon, in April 1956, the writer and university professor Ana Luísa Amaral has lived in Leça da Palmeira since she was 9 years old and has received multiple distinctions throughout her career, the most recent being the Vergílio Ferreira Award and the Spanish Leteo award.
