Jeff Blackman has long been an under-appreciated member of Ottawa’s literary community. Primarily known as a founding editor of the Ottawa’s great lost literary-sex magazine, The Moose & Pussy, Blackman has quietly but steadily developed one of the most unique and varied poetic voices in the city in the last half-decade. Previous publications from Odourless Press, Horsebroke, and In/Words received only a fragment of the attention they deserved. So Long As The People Are People is a call for the sanity of the humane and the personal in an increasingly negative and combative world.
