Flash Thrive: The Drive Home

July 2017

Come along for the ride. We've got places to be.

The Drive Home is the second collection of writing, photography, and illustration from the FLASH THRIVE zine collective. It is a zine about place, and the places we leave behind in order to get to where we need to go. Because we're always moving but we don't always know what we're moving towards.
