Herman August Paul De Coninck (Mechelen, 21 February 1944 - Lisbon, 22 May 1997) was a Flemish poet, essayist, journalist and magazine publisher. Herman de Coninck is known as “the man who taught his people to read poetry”, following the example of the 19th-century writer Hendrik Conscience, who “taught his people to read”.
In 1983 he started working for the Nieuw Wereld Tijdschrift (NWT). As editor-in-chief, he made NWT the first magazine in Flanders that was a crossover of literature and journalism. (Wikipedia)
