He organizes and presents Cenaclul 9, a literary circle coordinated by Direcția 9 Cultural Association. His debut volume, sticle goale fiare vechi/ empty bottles, scrap iron (cover image: Traian T. Coșovei, Mic animal marin lipsit de afecțiune/Small afectionless marine animal), was published by Tracus Arte publishing house, in Coșovei Collection, in 2016. His first book won ”Traian T. Coșovei” National Prize for debut in poetry, awarded by Tracus Arte in collaboration with Direcția 9 Cultural Association and AgențiadeCarte.ro in 2015. ’’Tudor Voicu is a poet of a refined modernism, who looks at the surrounding world through lenses thoroughly polished in the workshops of great masters, and this gives him a sought-after cultural precedent. At first glance, the spontaneity, plasticity and easiness with which he builds his lyrical discourse outlines the sensitive contour of an author with a genuine, distinctive voice, full of promises.’’ (Traian T. Coșovei, back cover, sticle goale fiare vechi/ empty bottles, scrap iron).
