Born 1949 in London, Rod Riesco has gradually moved northward and now lives in Lancashire.

He works full-time as a freelance translator and has been Secretary of Bank Street Writers, Bolton, since 1994 and runs regular workshops for this group, all of which leaves little time for writing poetry, but he has had work published in various magazines and anthologies over the years.

He is a frequent participant in Poetry School courses and one of his poems (The Long View, Arnside) was chosen for the Poetry School website in 2017: read poem here

His latest collection (pamphlet) is Familiar Machines, Wilderswood Press, 2002, ISBN 0 9524540 2 5  (ISBN 13: 978-0-9524540-2-1)
