Mauricio Rosencof (born June 30, 1933) is an Uruguayan playwright, poet and journalist from Florida, Uruguay. Since 2005 he has been Director of Culture of the Municipality of Montevideo.

He was a founder of the Communist Youth Union and leader of the National Liberation (Tupamaros) (MLN-T) and in 1972 was arrested and tortured. After the coup of 1973 he was held "hostage" with eight more prisoners.[1] After twelve years in prison, he was released in 1985.[1]

He has written several books. One of them, El regreso del Gran Tuleque, inspired the film El chevrolé.

He lives in Montevideo.
