Nabu Literary Agency is  happy to announce that Austrian writer Laura Freudenthaler wins the EUPL 2019 with her novel Geistergeschichte.

The European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) is an award which recognizes outstanding new and emerging literary talents across Europe, and highlights the wealth of contemporary European literature, while drawing attention to the continent’s unique cultural and linguistic heritage.

The national Juries choose their laureates who receive a financial prize but also benefit from increased international visibility and cross-border promotion like translation supports.

“We wish that all winners reach larger audiences trough the quality stories awarded, and their translations in a multilingual Europe and the world.” (Gunnar Ardelius, president of the European Writers’ Council)
