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

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,

CD62 - Badass Black Girl Book Excerpt and Poetry by MJ Fievre

Hello friends,

We are thrilled to present the work of MJ Fievre!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, M.J. Fievre moved to the United States in 2002. She currently writes from Winter Garden, FL.

M.J.’s publishing career began as a teenager in Haiti. At nineteen years-old, she signed her first book contract with Hachette-Deschamps, in Haiti, for the publication of a Young Adult book titled La Statuette Maléfique. Since then, M.J. has authored nine books in French that are widely read in Europe and the French Antilles. In 2013, One Moore Book released M.J.’s first children’s book, I Am Riding, written in three languages: English, French, and Haitian Creole. In 2015, Beating Windward Press published M.J.’s memoir, A Sky the Color of Chaos, about her childhood in Haiti during the brutal regime of Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

M.J. Fievre is the author of the Badass Black Girl series. She helps others write their way through trauma, build community and create social change. She works with veterans, disenfranchised youth, cancer patients and survivors, victims of domestic and sexual violence, minorities, the elderly, those with chronic illness or going through transition and any underserved population in need of writing as a form of therapy—even if they don’t realize that they need writing or therapy.

A long-time educator and frequent keynote speaker (Tufts University, Massachusetts; Howard University, Washington, D.C.; the University of Miami, Florida; and Michael College, Vermont; and a panelist at the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference, AWP), M.J. is available for book club meetings, podcast presentations, interviews and other author events.
