de bellas letras
Explanation:
Definition in English:

belles-lettres (bel-LET-ruh) (pl.n., used with a singular verb)

-Definition(s): 1. literature regarded for its aesthetic value rather than
its didactic or informative content 2. light, stylish writings, usually
on literary or intellectual subjects 3. belletrist (n.) a writer of
belles-lettres 4. belletristic (adj.) of or pertaining to such writing (http://lhostelaw.com/iaa/ia_archive_98apr.htm)

“Bellas letras” is the term in Spanish for “belles-lettres,” so you could say “de bellas letras.” Here is an example:

La vertiente narratológica es relativamente nueva en Mesoamérica, y se inicia entre nosotros, como tantas otras maravillas, con Rubén Darío, escritor insigne que se ganó el pan de cada día con prosa periodística primero, y luego con esa prosa de bellas letras, fundacional de su bibliografía activa, surgida en su primer libro de éxito que fue "Azul...", (http://www.elnuevodiario.com.ni/archivo/1999/julio/03-julio-...

Hope it helps.
