Andi Stout lives in Morgantown, WV where she is a student at West Virginia University. Although she self-identifies as a West Virginia writer, her fiction explores well beyond her familiar surroundings. She is interested in what is new and strange, the boundaries between reality and fantasy and dreams. In her story "Sustained Joy" she follows the adventures of a couple reunited for an evening in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and the strange encounters that they have there.      Emily Mitchell
