More details: Edwin M. Church was a life-long writer with an inquisitive mind and a love of the railroad.  He started writing in his early 20’s, and while a prolific writer, had only one short story published. The goal of this award is to encourage Swanton area community members to publish their work.  Because of Edwin’s love of the railroad we ask that submitted stories include a railroad or train reference.
