Creative Drive Podcast

The new phase of Creative Drive begins! I want to offer short readings of original poetry, flash fiction, dramatic works, as well as quick pep talks to get through the day-job. Creative Drive is all about believing in our creative work and getting it out there! Don’t be idle, make art!

Currently focusing on:

  • Poetry!
  • Sudden Fiction or Flash Fiction, no longer than 2,500 words.
  • Dramatic Writing such as Monologues and 10 minute plays with small casts.
  • Original Songs! Send your recordings!
  • The stuff you believe in but couldn’t find a home. I’d love to take a look!

I’m just a working class guy recording this podcast in the middle of nowhere, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to compensate you. This podcast is a labor of love and my long-term hope is that I can make it a safe place for collaboration and working class arts advocacy. I would love to hear from you!
