Peter Theunynck

Peter Theunynck (1960) is a freelance text writer, biographer of Karel Van de Woestijne and poet. Wholly convinced of the relativity of poetry, he set off to discover the outside world. For example, in 'Exceptional Present', together with photographer Norbert Maes, he investigates the interior lives of disabled people. And, as chairperson of the Green Belt Front and spokesperson of the Lappersfort Poets Society, Theunynck mobilises poetry against the continuing damage to the planet and gives voice to those neglected in 'the land of civilian kings'.
