Adélia Luzia Prado Freitas (born December 13, 1935), is a Brazilian writer and poet.

She was born in Divinópolis, Minas Gerais, and started writing at the age of 40 which is relatively late in life for a poet. Although much of her outlook is religious, deeply Catholic, her works are often about the body.

Adélia Prado's poems were translated into English by Ellen Watson and published in a book entitled The Alphabet in the Park (Wesleyan University Press, 1990).

In 2014, she received the Griffin Lifetime Recognition Award, presented by the trustees of the Griffin Poetry Prize.[1]
