Childhood and youth Elena Likhach

The girl’s parents Alexander Fedorovich and Marina Leonidovna are also natives of St. Petersburg. Dad worked at the Severnaya Verf shipbuilding enterprise. Mom was a math teacher at school.
From a very early age, the girl showed interest in music, books and art in general. Parents saw this, and grandparents supported the girl’s interest in every way and helped her develop. Then they lived on Ligovsky Prospekt, and the girl often visited them.
Grandmother was a musician, taught piano lessons at a music school. Grandfather worked in construction as an engineer. But the main hobby of my grandfather’s life was literature. He passionately loved poetry, and the girl involuntarily absorbed this love. Grandfather could freely quote from memory poems and passages from his favorite prose.

With nostalgia, the poetess recalls her short but successful sports career. Elena was engaged in fencing and showed excellent results in this area. Having achieved the level of a master of sports, the sport had to be abandoned due to a knee injury.
The beginning of the creative path
The poetess for a long time pleased her friends, relatives and a rather narrow circle of acquaintances with her poems. But in 2003, she released her first collection of poems and received a good response from her readers. The collection aroused great interest among lovers of lyrics. The main theme of the poems is native Peter. The poetess found inspiration around her, walking along her favorite streets, enjoying its special character and mood. The collection was called “At the bottom of the St. Petersburg wells.”
Elena Likhach did not stop there, she continued to write and after 4 years she pleased her fans with the next collection “Thirtieth Spring”. These poems are devoted to warm memories of a happy childhood. The poetess also subtly expressed her admiration for spring landscapes. Immortal philosophical questions about life, love and experiences were not left without attention.
The search for a muse, experiments in the work
Although the poetess is an eternal admirer of the classics, she is not at all against modern trends in literature. She boldly participates in literary competitions, often attends thematic events, exhibitions and press conferences.
Elena loves to travel, each time finding new emotions and impressions, which are then put on paper in the form of beautiful lines. Most of all, the poetess liked the trip to Barcelona and Rome.

Elena writes for herself, for the soul and from the heart. Poetry does not bring her much money. This is purely a hobby. Today, the creative plans of the poetess – to create a third collection of poems. According to Elena, she would be happy if at least one of her poems once sounded in an elective class in some audience.
Personal life of Elena Likhach
