      Zdravko Duša
      graduated in English and comparative literature from the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana. After holding posts at ČGP Delo and Studio Marketing Delo, he worked as a fiction and humanities editor for the Cankarjeva založba publishing company for three decades. As a translator, he mainly devoted himself to late-twentieth-century American and English drama, whilst also translating some important novels from that period into Slovenian. As well as leading Pokaži jezik, a series of workshops on screenwriting, for a number of years, he promoted the publishing of renowned authors’ books on screenwriting. His credits as a script- and dialogue writer or walk-on actor include documentaries, feature films, and TV series. Zdravko Duša’s short story, Pa ravno tako je bilo, inspired Oroslan (2019), a film by Matjaž Ivanišin.
