In the full-day workshop each author will present on their writing and discuss the stories that they have written and highlight cultural nuances and universal themes.

The Wisconsin International Outreach Consortium (WIOC) sponsors this annual event in observance of International Education Week. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
