Arturo Mantecón is a poet, story writer and translator. His poetry has been published here and there. A collection of his short stories, Memories, Cuentos Verídicos, y Otras Outright Lies, was published by En Casa in 2014.
He has translated the poetry and prose of the mad Spanish poeta maldito, Leopoldo María Panero, in three collections: My Naked Brain (Swan Scythe Press, 2011), Like an eye in the hand of a beggar (Editions Michel Eyquem, 2013), and Rosa Enferma / The Sick Rose (Swan Scythe Press, 2016).

He is currently working on translating the work of Mario Santiago Papasquiaro, the Mexican infra-realist poet, and a volume of these translations is due out in 2018.
