A single-day, micro-conference about travel writing and photography in Nashville, Tennessee with Anitra Durand Allen, Chelsea Day, Roni Faida, and Susan Pazera.
FLOCK brings together four women who have extensive experience in the travel industry, content creation, and know-how in navigating the industry. Learn how to pitch travel opportunities, find brands that want to work with influencers, discover how to create engaging content, and curate and edit your travel photos. Know what you’ll need in a travel-focused bio that captures attention and showcases your unique perspective and value to readers, followers, and brands.
Our panel created a space that sets them apart from others. They’ll share how they have found success in a niche full of travel writers, photographers, and bloggers who have saturated the market. Our experts have been traveling, writing, working with brands, and making an impact in the travel industry. They’ll share how what they discovered over the years, and what helped them get to where they are today.
Join us in Music City (Nashville) to learn from these speakers who have taken roads, both heavily trafficked, and less-traveled, and put their mark on the map.
Anitra Durand Allen is a certified family and relationship coach dedicated to helping moms raising high achieving children support their super kids one achievement at a time. A certified project management professional and biomedical engineer, she walked away from corporate America when the pull between being fully committed to her career and fully committed to her family became too great. Now, as a parenting and lifestyle content creator, she teaches families how to take the skills they use on the job and create success in their own homes. Anitra writes at The Mom on the Move.
Chelsea Day and her husband, Nate, run Someday I’ll Learn, and are on a mission to share smart ideas for adventurous families. They set out to make everyday life more efficient and inspire people to seize fun opportunities. Nate offers up hands-on fatherhood and a forthright approach to life’s challenges. Chelsea adds color with creative how-tos and commentary about rugged living in a modern era. Their site culminates in a he-said-she-said humorous journal that documents our daily exploits.
They believe that life doesn’t have to be lived on anyone’s terms but your own, and even the smallest moments can hold BIG life lessons.
