Social Media Retreat Program Details

NVNR Presents Social Media Retreat

If you haven’t registered yet for the NVNR Social Media Retreat, there is still time! Registration remains open through the weekend. Registered attendees will receive their unique login links beginning Friday, March 19th.


Two important steps to do in preparation for next week’s event:

  1. Create a Canva account if you don’t already have one. Canva is a free app and using it will be an important part of the skills you learn at the Social Media Retreat.
  2. Look through the assets you will be using during the program. Registrants will receive a link to graphics for promoting books provided by the publisher sponsors of the Social Media Retreat. We’re very grateful for their support and their belief in the important of indie booksellers. By registering, all event attendees have agreed to share social media posts for the books by our sponsors.

Each day’s program focuses on a specific social media platform. The mornings are devoted to workshops and panels. Then there is an Author Panel Lunch from one of the sponsoring publishers, followed by an afternoon of breakout sessions for a specific social media platform. Attendees can join the regular or advanced breakout room, or the “ideas free for fall” room.
