Introducing Gather and Getaway
An Immersive Travel and Blogging Experience
in collaboration with Bon Traveler
I’m beyond thrilled to share with you something big I’ve been working on this year…
Beginning with our debut workshop in January 2019, my dear friend and fellow blogger Jessica Wright and I will be leading retreats for female creatives!
Together we’ll share all we know about growing a blog, including working with brands, pitching, press trips, photography, social media strategy, and more. We’ll select eight women to join us over 4 days/3 nights. Our first retreat will be taking place in beautiful Carmel, so we’ll also have the chance to explore the California coast as a group!
Jessica and I connect through our mutual passion for global experiences and immersive storytelling. Since we met (via social media!) nearly five years ago, travel writing, blogging, and photography have become our full-time careers. She is not only an amazing professional peer, but also a constant of support, trust, and transparency for me in an often solo (read: a tad lonely!) industry.
We believe there is strength in community and that the journey is best when shared. We seek to share the best of a destination — going beyond the surface, connecting with a place, and sharing intentionally and from an inspired place.
So as we sat down to catch up over coffee as we always do (when we’re both at home in SF,) we talked about the desire both to bring other female bloggers together and to share what we’ve learned over years of our career experience. We wanted to take the experience of encouragement and inspiration that we give to each other and expand that to others.
We sought out to develop and nurture a community and supportive space for fellow female creators who embody our values of quality, integrity, and purpose. If you’re a beginning or intermediate blogger with an active website, we’d love to introduce you to G+G and invite you to consider the retreat.
You can find all the information for the Gather and Getaway Carmel retreat on our website, Gather + Getaway. Both Jessica and I are available to answer any questions you may have, and look forward to receiving your applications!
