Marie Šťastná (6 April 1981, Valašské Meziříčí,[1][2][4] Czechoslovakia, now Czech Republic) is a Czech poet. She has a degree in Art History and History of Culture from the University of Ostrava.[1][3]

She participated in Ortenova Kutná Hora, a literary competition for poets under 22 years of age.

In 2004 she received the Jiří Orten's Award (cs: Cenou Jifiího Ortena), a prestigious award for authors under thirty years, for her collection of poems, Krajina s Ofélií (Scenery with Ophelia). Juror Ivan Binar said "The unsightly book with a suspicious title was a great surprise and pleasure for me. I began reading, and didn't stop until I reached the end".

In 2010 she was awarded the Dresdner Lyrikpreis.[7]

Šťastná regularly holds public readings of her works in Ostrava and Brno, but also attends larger literature events such as "Literature May". She lives in Prague, Czech Republic.
