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!

CD40 – 21 Minutes Ticked by J. Alejandro Creative Drive

Hello all! Trying out some video for the Creative Drive Podcast! Here's a short story I wrote a few months ago, I'm working my way back into writing fiction, so here it goes! If you're a writer with a day-job, I'd love to know what you're up to and how you're holding up in the throes of every day chaos. Submit your poetry and flash fiction today and I'd love to share it on the podcast! Send in your short works today, especially the rejected ones at creativedriveshow (at) gmail (dot) com, or through our website! Much love, j
