Since 2010, Felipe Cattapan is also working professionally with literature. He writes poems, short stories and theater plays in Portuguese (Brazilian), developing, with great enthusiasm, intensity and originality his own style. He won numerous prizes in Brazil and Portugal (also first prizes). He has many texts in literary journals and anthologies from Brazil and Portugal and regularly participates in literary and cultural events (for example: 1st. Intercultural Meeting, City Library Biel, 2016; Salon International du Livre et de la Presse de Genève, 2017 and 2018; 3rd. Poetry Festival of Lisbon, 2018; etc.).

His book «Densidades Cíclicas» (poems and short stories in Portuguese; cover by Beat Zoderer; recommended by Adriana Lisboa, Stefan Kunzmann and Teresa Ribeiro; foreword by Ricardo Prado) was published in Brazil in October 2016, and, later, in Switzerland; the 4th. edition will be published in 2018. At the moment, it is the best-selling book by Helvetia publisher house! Felipe Cattapan would also be possibly interested in a translation.
