Send me your short works!

I’d love to feature your work on the Creative Drive Podcast! Creative Drive is all about believing in our stories and getting them out there, while delivering a recording of great quality for you to share with your fans, family, and friends! Don’t be idle, make art!

Currently focusing on:

  • Poetry! Up to three poems please.
  • 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 or audio experiments!
  • I am partial to immigrant stories and works from underrepresented communities. I’m here for you!
  • The stuff you believe in but couldn’t find a home. I’d love to take a look!
  • Racist works, senseless violence, NSFW content will not be tolerated.
  • I have tried reading erotic works in the past but I blush too much and giggle excessively, so I can’t help you there, sorry!

While I won’t be able to compensate you, I offer you a high-quality, professional recording of your reading at your request, for you to use for marketing and other purposes. You retain the rights to your work, so let’s get the word out! This podcast project is a labor of love and has now become a welcoming platform to showcase collaboration and working class arts advocacy.

I would love to hear from you!

CD63 – Power Outage Musing Number One (and Zero) | A poem by Jaime Alejandro Creative Drive

Hey friends, Creative Drive is back in action! I wanted to share some music and poetry experiments I have been working on recently. This is the first of a few more to come, and I hope I can keep sharing original work every now and then on the podcast. This is a reading of a poem with original music, from my debut poetry collection, "Flame to the Watering Hole." I wrote it when I worked at the cemetery. Check it out if you can, I would greatly appreciate it. Looking forward to reading your work! Make art. Much love, j Produced by J. Alejandro Creative Drive is an international podcast produced by J. Alejandro to bring visibility to poets and writers from all walks of life. If you have a sec, please SUBSCRIBE AND REVIEW this labor of love, and don't forget to tell your writer friends!
