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!

A message on recent delays. Creative Drive

Hey there, As you may have noticed, there have been a few episode delays on Thursdays recently. That makes me incredibly sad because I am desperate to record your episodes! Unfortunately, due to a perfect storm of submission volume and vocal problems on my part, I will be working on keeping my allergies in check and catching up on submissions. I would rather delay the episodes just a little, in order to give my best rendition of your stories and poetry! I hope to be up and running again in a few weeks. I thank you for your beautiful work, your patience, and I hope to get back to producing your episodes in the coming weeks! I can't wait to pick up where we left off. Much love, j
