Jeff Blackman

Author of I don't know what you need

Jeff Blackman's poetry has been described as risky while loaded with empathy, self-aware yet able to instantly connect, and unusually original. In his latest collection, "I don't know what you need" from Horsebroke Press, Jeff interrogates his own bliss, privilege and luck through reflections on consumerism, identity politics, social media, and fatherhood. His poems appear in spring issues from words(on)pages press in Toronto and Puddles of Sky Press in Kingston, and the most recent volume of Best Canadian Poetry in English. Jeff lives in Ottawa with his beautiful family, and is temporarily a stay-at-home dad.
