Ana Schnabl debuted with her short story collection Razvezani (Beletrina, 2017), which was awarded the Best Debut Prize at the Slovenian Book Fair and was nominated for the Novo mesto Award for best short story collection and the MIRA Literary Award of the Slovenian PEN Centre. The translation of the collection into Serbian (Partizanska knjiga, 2018) received the Croatian Edo Budiša Award, and the collection has also been translated into German (Folio Verlag, 2020).
Her first novel, Mojstrovina (Beletrina, 2020), has won approval from numerous literary critics at home, and its English translation (Istros Books, 2021) featured in the Los Angeles Review of Books and The Irish Times. This year, the novel Mojstrovina received a German (Folio Verlag) and Serbian translation (Partizanska knjiga). In parallel to the translations, her second novel, a quasi-criminal novel Plima (Beletrina), was published in 2022. In past years she has taken positions as writer-in-residence in Belgrade, Pazin in Croatia, Lavigny in Switzerland, and this year in Vienna (Museumsquartier) and Berlin (LCB). In the last week of August this year Schnabl also led an artistic seminar within the framework of the European Forum in Alpbach.
