For those who have a job in some industry other than writing full-time, how does one balance the two professions?

Panelists: Batsirai Chigama (Zimbabwe), Aye Lei Thwada (Myanmar), Buddhisagar (Nepal), Madara Gruntmane (Latvia)

The International Authors series provides an opportunity for the community to meet and converse with writers from around the world who are the 2019 Writers in Residence at the University of Iowa International Writing Program.
