Helena Haraštová

Helena Haraštová was educated at Brno’s Classical Grammar School before going on to graduate in Dramaturgy from the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts. Since 2012 she has been a part-time student of English Language and Literature at the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University, Brno. She works mainly as a writer and a translator from English and Russian – her work includes small-scale translations in the Bizzbooks imprint and a Czech translation of a musical by Bernardo Albo. After two years working for the company of the National Theatre in Brno, she became a literary editor at B4U Publishing. Currently Helena Haraštová is fully engaged by her duties as a mother. She first worked for children on a dramatization of The Life Story of a Baby with a Big Head for the National Theatre in Brno. Her most unusual pastime is searching texts of all kinds for errors of spelling, grammar and style.
