Mattia Natale nominated for František Halas Literary Competition
Current UEA student Mattia Natale has been chosen as a runner-up in the Literární soutěž Františka Halase (František Halas Literary Competition), which is named after František Halas, an acclaimed 20th century Czech poet known for supporting young writers. The competition is for Czech poets under the age of 30 who haven’t yet published a collection. Mattia (pictured) is in his final year as a student on the BA in English Literature with Creative Writing at UEA. His poetry portfolio was published online when the finalists were announced, and he has since been invited to submit his first book to a major Czech poetry publisher.
