First-place winner Natalie Hutchinson read her poem about a fox and his neighbors. The Great Falls Writer's Group's 2017 Youth Writing Gala featured winners reading their works produced during a timed writing prompt. “I never thought about sharing my writing with others outside my close friends and family. I was nervous about reading my poem out loud, but when I heard the applause I felt like I could do it again," said Hutchinson.
