Mario Petrucci has had residencies at both the Imperial War Museum and BBC Radio 3.  Combining poetic innovation with a profoundly human aspect, he is four times winner of the London Writers competition and recipient of the Bridport Prize, an ACE Writers' Award and a New London Writers Award.  His collection Heavy Water (Enitharmon, 2004) won the Arvon Prize and forms the backbone of a powerful poetry film on Chernobyl (Seventh Art Productions).  This year, StAnza launches Petrucci’s remarkable i tulips collection (Enitharmon), which has already been praised highly by Roy Fisher and Bill Berkson.
