Congratulations to our 2017 Nano winners!

We received almost 600 entries in the Nano competition so the job of the judges wasn't an easy one. All stories had to be 50 words exactly and include the word shadow. Entrants were only allowed to enter one nano story and had to reside within 150km of Albury.
