The Bagus NG is a literary platform dedicated to promoting African literature and the arts, and in the process bring needed awareness to the work of authors and artists. Curated by Ijeoma Ucheibe, they offer services ranging from virtual book tours and book marketing services to editorial services and consultation services. Founded in 2016, The Bagus NG organizes an annual brunch, beginning from last year, to commemorate with its anniversary. The platform’s fourth anniversary, and its second annual brunch, is scheduled to take place on March 7, 2020, in Lagos.

As part of the activities for the anniversary, it will host a masterclass on compelling storytelling, titled “Writing Compelling Stories for Today’s Authors,” to be handled by Opeyemi O’Gbemiro of Fourth Canvas. It will be an interactive session on industry favourites alongside attendees sharing their experiences on author branding and the right stories to be told.

There will also be panel discussions on the topic, “Author Branding: What’s Your Story?,” involving experienced literary personalities who will share insights on the business of branding. The panelists include the author Toni Kan, the author and security expert Ugochi Obidiegwu, the writer and editor Harold Benson, and the humor writer Stephen Eke. Sessions would be moderated by Syn City NG Creative Director Cynthia Osuchukwu.

There will also be poetry and music performances and a customized menu.

Interested attendees can register here.

Attendees are advised to reserve a seat as soon as possible as a result of limited spaces.

Time: 2–4 pm.

The venue will be communicated to confirmed attendees.

Enquiries should be forwarded to info@bagusng.com.
